Had a sleep in as it will be a while until I would be in a bed again. Checked into my new hotel. Had lunch and went for a walk through the spice bazaar. It sold more than spices here- had the same crap as the Grand Bazaar.

Went back to the hotel to prepare my things for the trip to Gallipoli. Met the others (Mike, Steve, Claire and Rachel). It was going to be an interesting trip as there were a few drunks on the bus with drinks for the road. We left at 4pm and who's knows when we were to arrive as there would be traffic and bus drivers think that tourists like to spend time on slow buses. The roads are in terrible conditions- I think drivers are paid by the hour and avoid highways to make the journey more painfully longer. A few hours later we stopped for a snack. Had a nap on the bus. Then it was time for a 10pm dinner. A few hours later we left for Gallipoli.
