After the tour ended I hitched a ride with Kevin and Sheri to Nicosia and stayed overnight in a hotel that is better left unmentioned. We strolled around the old city and sauntered across the Green Line to inspect the vast array of very reasonably-priced goods by Gucci, Nike etc.

I flew out this morning from Ercan airport in North Cyprus to Antalya on the south coast of Turkey. It has a lovely old centre with Ottoman houses and a Roman gateway, surrounded by many square kilometres of resort-oriented new town. While inspecting the Roman-era mausoleum perched on a cliff by the sea I bumped into a retired Turkish policeman who spoke very good German (much better than mine!)
