After a week and a bit of being very busy, we decided to do nothing very much today apart from relaxing in the hotel courtyard and strolling around town. We lay in, had a delicious and very leisurely breakfast, wrote emails and just sat around in the lovely courtyard, surrounded by birdsong and grape vines.

In the evening we had dinner at an extremely atmospheric restaurant called Dibek, where we ate at an extremely low table whilst lounging on cushions.

We shared dishes such as cacik, which is a yoghurt and cucumber dish similar to tzaziki and tarator; shepherd's salad; grated beetroot (on the house); and the main dish - a pottery kebab with rice! This is a local speciality of meat chunks and vegetables baked for hours (literally - we had to give at least 6 hours' notice) in a clay pot sealed with bread - in such a way that the lid of the pot has to be smashed to get at the food inside. For dessert we shared a dish called Aside or Asida; a local dish of flour mixed with oil and grape molasses. To top off such a lovely meal, I had a delicious Turkish coffee.
