Impressions from our 20 hour train journey to Adana

Sunflower fields towards journey's end, although the journey did last a couple of hours longer than it should have done. It was another great experience, bringing back memories of the 32 hour trip we made from Istanbul to Aleppo back in 2005 at the start of our six month journey through Middle East and Africa. That time we took the Toros Express, this time, the Icanadolu Mavi Express, which is more modern with air conditioning and a restaurant car. Leaving at just before midnight, we had time for a beer before climbing between the fresh white sheets and rolling off into sleep as the train headed eastwards, waking up somewhere short of the city of Konya.
