Thank you for all the good wishes for my trip. It was really, really nice. I didn't get much sleep, because we had to be ready to board the bus every morning at around 8 am, but it was worth it.
Got to see a part of the world that I'd never been before. Got to wallow in antiquity. Got to see wonderful nature - ocean, beaches, mountains, blooming almond trees and orchards with ripe oranges ready to fall into your lap. Ate tons of incredibly good food - most of it veggies, all of it fresh, right off the field, and totally delicious. Took advantage of the outdoor hot spring at one hotel, of the hamam and spa at another.
I'll have pics, when I get them developed. Yes, I still use an old-fashioned Minolta X-700 camera. :) No digital pics for me... ;)
Now to dig my way through all the mails and stuff that's been waiting for me :)
