    40 millions just for a fan, TV and bathroom... did you BUY that place ?? ;-)) ...I still rememeber my last time in Turkey, 1987, I paid 200 TL for a tasty sesame-ring and I also still hold a coin of 10 TL...

    Every night at 930pm u can see the WHIRLING DERVISHES perform. Get there at 8.45 if you want to get a seat. WOMEN sit at the top (as in the pic) and the men sit below.

    Bursa was left behind my travel-ring this time though our guide was from this city and he praised as one of the most interesting place in Turkey. Thanks Malena for sharing!

    Another excellent chapter on your travels through Turkey! Yes, regrets about not visiting the royal apartments or buying that scarf! When we were at the Grand Canyon we forked out some extra $ for a helicopter ride - would likely never get another chance!
