On a jet plane………

Well 3 actually……Turkish Airlines, Royal Jordanian and Thai and we will then be in Brisbane.

Yesterday we had a wander around and saw a bit of Turkish life beside the Mamara sea, BBQs, sunbaking on the rocks (no Russian chicks Harry), fishing,  bread venders and the Spice Bazaar. Leanne also got interviewed and videod twice by school children wanting to speak to English-speaking tourists.

Lucky the Romans were thoughtful enough to make the Acquaduct arches wide enough to fit buses and cars through.

Not a lot more to add as I must close down and get ready to go.

But I must say something about food. Buffets, buffets , buffets. I think  have had my fill of buffets. After 4 weeks going around on buses in Israel and Turkey the gulet trip was a relief from buffets. The food on the boat was simple but very tasty. Two grilled sea bass meals were excellent.

BUT there has been no bacon for 6 weeks, not a pig to be seen. So I have declared war on the pig and will set about it on our return. Bacon and eggs for breaky, ham and tomato sandwich for lunch and a roast pork dinner with baked vegies.

So I know sign off until next time.

  1. Six weeks without bacon and Russian chicks is probably too much. Life is tough. In two days you will be home……
