by rachel_sun

More Info: Do trust and make friends with the local people,they are genuine and very nice.Trust them and they will trust you.Do relax,which is not hard,as you are made to feel so welcome. Do go into a traditional restaurant with rugs and cushions and Turkish music playing,this was beautiful and i will remember it for years to come. My fondest,or one of my fondest mems was one night in a bar at the harbour,there was a Gulet boat with local men on it.They were drinking and playing some sort of board game.One of them started playing an instrument(a turkish gaiture i think).It was beautiful.Another man started to sing.They started to dance and i thought,that is the real Turkey.The locals were wondeful.My mum bought me this while we were in Kalkan for my birthday.It was hand painted by a turk man and i love it.So much care and work has been put into it.
