The tables of the bar were well shaded under the poplars. The drinks were perfectly cool. However, the temperature was deadly hot because of the northerly wind.

What?

Aren’t we in Turkey and isn’t Turkey in the Northern hemispheres and in the Northern hemisphere aren’t Northerly winds cold ones ?

Yes, this is right. Most of the time but not here in southwestern Turkey! Look at a map. In the Fethiye-Marmaris area, northerly winds blow across the high plateaux of Anatolia which are dry and hot. When they reach the coast, this is as if they were going out of an oven!

The result: everybody is know down by the heat, except the photographer, of course. On duty haha!
