Actually I am in Olympos down in the south of Turkey beside the shimmering Mediterranean. We are all here, little Eva too. It is very hot and unbelievably humid but as a result everything is green and lush. The gardens of this place are artfully overgrown, the beach is just beyond.

To date my most popular post ever has been The Great Turkish Breakfast. Let me tell you about this morning’s and you will see why breakfast is by far and away my favourite meal in this country.

A wide selection of shiny black olives, various jams, yogurts, fruits, and cheeses are all displayed with flair. To protect them from dust and insects, everything is meticulously covered with cling film. On one side there are the breads and freshly baked poğaça and kurabiye. The smell alone is so tempting that you can’t help taking one.
|the poğaça – savoury pastries with cheese inside|
|warm and fragrant kurabiye fresh from the oven – they
melt in your mouth!
|the pale green one is acur, a kind of cucumber that you don’t find in the big city|
|I love the presentation|
