Bodrum

After keeping watch half the night we wanted to be in a secure place tonight so we lifted anchor and set sail for Bodrum.

 Bodrum with it's old castle is one of the top ten attractions in Turkey so after an afternoon snooze we walked this unique town.
 We prefer the back streets away from the tourist and see how the real Bodrum people live.

 Kids playing....
...........and shop keepers having their afternoon tea






We really lucked out finding this tucked in a side street local restaurant "Nazik Ana" The cook a Kurdish Turk prepared a typical Turkish dish over an open charcoal fire. 
The restaurant had also been discovered by "The lonely Planet" who did a write up on Nazik Ana.
Not as fancy as the waterfront restaurants but pure Turkish.
 After paying our bill ( all of $21.45 Can. including a glass of wine and a beer) we strolled through some more of historic Bodrum.

Thanks for the recommendation on a great place to eat in Bodrum. It's a great town for getting off the beaten track and discovering a hidden gem. Will have to see it out next time I'm in the area. Jay
