Central Asia Lite, Dalaman

One of the best thing about Turkey is that it feels like you're visiting a "Central Asia Lite". It's like Tashkent without the longhaul flight and problematic visas and nervous feelings about terrorism and language barriers.

Wandering around these farming areas at night I could explain myself in German, and feel safe, and all much cheaper than Central Asia - but still with the strange mix of Soviet blocks threaded with fragrant vines.

The ghosts in this image are an interested family of concerned elders pleading with and commanding excited kids not to talk to the strange chap with the tripod.

Hope everyone is having a terrific week!
