More on our "Pamukkale" trip

We mentioned before how many tomatoes were grown in green houses.
This trip we realized that in the Manderes valley field grown tomatoes were also plentyful.   And the tomato harvest was in full swing.


 Not only tomatoes are transported by tractor and wagon.

These pickers (all ladies) were transported to a field ready for harvest.

These "maidens" were between fields and waiting for the wagon ride.

We wondered how they could stand the 30 + degrees Celsius heat dressed as they were.
One thing for sure they did not need any sun block!!
