We arrived in Amasya today, after taking a flight to Samsun and a bus from there. Good to be getting out and about in Turkey again, visiting some cities new to us and a couple of old favourites. Amasya is very very pretty, especially with these old houses overlooking the river.
In the meantime, Amasya is how to the best and tastiest apples in Turkey and, possibly, the world...
A pity about the local cuisine but at least we ended the day listening to some beautiful Turkish music being sung live in a Turku Bar.
