Bodrum Day 01

Last night we took the bus to come to Bodrum (south West of Turkey). We came here with two friends but on different buses. We had trouble finding 4 places on the same bus since it's holidays and all the buses were booked. Engin & Reyhan took the 9pm bus, I took the 9.30 pm bus, My dad took the the 10.30pm bus and Ekin took the 11pm one. You have to know that Turkish buses company are not like the one you can find in the U.S (Greyhound, Chinatown bus) or in Europe (Eurolines). Here you have many many different companies going everywhere and the services on board are like the one you can find on planes.
Anyway, We all arrived at different times to Bodrum but we enjoyed the calm and serenity of the place altogether.
The weather is a bit chilly but the water is very nice.

No Smoking on TV

The movie "Patton" was on TV today. There is apparently a new regulation on TV. You can't show cigarettes an cigars anymore. Which is not very smart and totally ruins the character of the movie.

The guy has a cigar in his mouth during the whole scene and we can't see his mouth anymore.
But notice how you can open a bottle of Champagne freely.

Today's Picture

I wanted to take a picture of this wall saying "Don't litter the lot, get used to use the garbage bin"

Then this worker came and ask me to take his picture.

Alvin Ailey ADT

Tonight we went to the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater show and it was amazing.
I wanted to do Ekin a surprise because she really likes modern dance. But there wasn't any available ticket left. But she managed to find some invitations so we went and it was great night.
