The weather when we first got here....
The weather as we are leaving...!!
Nevertheless we had our own fun in our own way in the stories I have shared with you... yesterday was nothing short of another fun filled day for us though! As I told you we were going to, we went fishing. If you haven't seen in the pictures of Belek, there is the perfect beach on the Mediterranean but then in the background there are huge snow-capped mountains. It is beautiful and flabergasting because I never actually thought the mountains and the beach could be seen together. Californians say that it is the only place in America where you can surf and board in the same day.... not like here you cant! In Turkey you can look out over the Mediterranean and without looking in a different direction see the mountains you could ski on in an hour. I bring up the scenery because we got the opportunity to drive into those mountains yesterday for our fishing trip.
We drove about an hour to a little turnoff that looks like the entry into a farm in Wyoming or something. We drove down a little road and parked next to a damned river where there was a tiny, sketch, handmade, wooden bridge leading us to our final destination. Simone kept telling me that it was like a bridge in a horror film and that scared me so one of our nice coaches carried me...
This is the washing station to get cleaned up before eating lunch
Come dinner that night we were all famished and tired. I am not sure if it was because no one really ate much of their meal or because we were out in the sun all day but it sure was a fun way to end our time in Turkey. Tomorrow we take off to Russia and I will be able to get settled into where I will spend the next couple of months!
For the last time...
cheers from Turkey!!
