A request...

...from Charlotte Ann, who has recently started to follow my blog.  She would like to see some pics of the nearest town, which is Milas.  So here are a few that I have found...none of which have been taken by me...but this is something I will rectify in due course:


  1. OH! These are wonderful. I want to visit and the reason being, it's so different there. The market looks divine; the clothes, the buildings...thank you so much!

  2. You're very welcome xxx

  3. I love the pictures of the ladies at the market. Reminds me so much of my second home and the market at Fethiye

  4. auntiegwen: It could really be a market anywhere in Turkey couldn't it?

  5. Thanks for that. I am always curious about places that are really different for me. Well Turkey seems very different.
    Beautiful place. Diverse.

  6. Lovely pictures. Thank you.It's lovely to see where you go. Is your Turkish good enough to talk to the ladies? There are still one or two ladies selling their own produce on the rural French market here but they are getting very few now. More and more very black Africans and nasty clothes stalls.

  7. When we back-packed in Turkey in the late 70s we felt that it was very foreign, so much was so different from the UK, and from your photos it seems that's still the case! But then Turkey is only just in Europe, and most of it's in Asia, so it's not surprising.

  8. Maggie...yes it's very diverse which is why I love it.

    Rosie: My Turkish isn't really very good but yes I manage ok when shopping and chatting to the stallholders. These ladies look just the same as all the women in my village.

    Jan: Most of the "normal" towns like Milas haven't changed too much. The tourist areas tend to change a fair bit though.


I love getting comments, but don't feel obliged...I'm just happy you're reading my blog.
