A walk around Sinop - too shy to step forward

And now we are on the nightbus to Trabzon, at the eatern end of Turkey's Black Sea coast, up towards Georgia. The bus is mostly empty, which is nice and we have made contact with a couple of players or supporters of Trabzonspor, which is consistently one of the best football teams outside Istanbul.

Did I mention it before but I alays get a laugh when I say my fave Turkish team is Gaziantepspor.

Fred has finished the Angel's Game and is now well into Birds Without Wings, which is much more appropriate to this holiday, being an historical epos set in Turkey at the time of the country's creation. I must admit I have not got very far with Platero and me.


******************

What started off as a leisurely walk in the bright sunshine of a summer's day in Sinop ended up with frantic visits to the Fuji Image Center to get photos developed and then given out to their subjects, or at least people who knew the subjects. Must've spent a small fortune today but it is always nice to give something back. not to mention the fact that we were given both lunch (in the form of fresh fruits) and dinner (chicken and rice, pide and ayran) and beer in return!

The dinner was courtesy of the father of the groom whose weddingcebrations we stumbled upon, attracted by the local band which was palying, dancing and performing in the street. Wonderful colourful stuff with rlly energetic pipe and drum music

So, no time for a nice scrub down at the old hammam behind our hotel, requiring me to have a whore's wash at the sink in the hotel's toilet, followed by a change of shirt and the customary eau de cologne in the bus.

Driving through the streets of Gerze, as the Muezzin calls the faithful to the mosque next to the bus station. Wonderful! And Gerze looks to be a preety place too.
