We have been travelling north along the coast. The towns vary markedly. My favourites are those with the cobbled streets and fishing village atmosphere. Of course some are highly geared to tourists and the worst look like the nasty side of Spain. We have seen the ugly tourists, badly burned and in search of beer and fries! Oh yes we have plenty of them at home too.

I take the opportunity to swim in the sea where possible. The colour is fabulous! The photo here of Kaputas beach near Kas does not do it justice! Accommodation is very good and very affordable by Australian standards.

Today we have visited a Temple of Apollo in Didim. Dates back to 8th century BC. Small and so charming. Loved it! Roll on Ephesus!

Postscript: Met an aspiring travel guide in Konya. He kept telling us: "I am website. You understand?" I will keep his card if you ever have need. It could be an interesting tour!

Sounds better than a yurt
the ruins look slightly better than 'disneyland' Bukhara and the accommodation much better. Having fun (sort of) regardless. Have some fish for us. Greg & Pat
