Travelled by local bus to the national park near Kusadasi 20 km. I must research the Muslim equivalent of kissing the earth upon safe arrival at one’s destination. As of this evening I am in his debt thrice over.
The National Park near Kusadasi is a gem of crystal clear turquoise waters,I hope a foretaste of my Great Big Blue Swim beginning in a little more than a week.
I walked along a Canyon some 13km round trip ascending, according to my iPhone, some 47 storeys of a skyscraper. Then several swims before the unnerving bus back and a delightful Turkish Pide just down the road from my hotel for evening meal.
