A Walk Along the Water-front

Filed under: General — Tags: — admin @ 6:06 pm

Ayvalik, Turkey.

I caught the bus from Canakkale at 10am and after innumerable stops at every otogar along the way, I arrived at Ayvalik, more than a hundred kilometers east. The weather is overcast today. After checking into my hotel, I had a doner kebab and a turkish coffee. Then came back and got my camera gear and went for a walk along the water-front.

Very few birds about. I was very disappointed. 🙁

This rocky hill across the bay had some interesting rock structures.
