Mr A needed to see someone in Bodrum about a possible job, so I decided to go over with him and meet up with Gwen.
I also had to visit the Turkish Airlines office because my flights have been changed for December so had to be re-confirmed.
There are a few cafes to choose from and the prices are quite reasonable, with seating outside as well as inside. It was very quiet though and I wonder how much business they will have. These shopping malls have sprung up all over Turkey. We've visited a few and they never seem to be very busy, with the exception of Forum Bornova in Izmir, which I think is popular because it has an Ikea store.

There is a large Carrefour supermarket in Midtown and I decided to do my food shopping there. I notice that Bodrum prices are higher than Carrefour in Milas. I did however find something that I have been wanting to buy for a long time, at a very good price. An electric kettle with cay (Turkish tea) pot on top. I needed a new kettle and I'm afraid I avoid making cay because it's messy so poor Mr A puts up with teabags..he is of course delighted that he can now have proper cay every day.
I did a very silly thing when I tried out the kettle for the first time. I boiled water in it and poured it in to the washing-up bowl. Then for some unexplained reason I stupidly put my fingers in the boiling water. Ouch ...blisters! They are now covered in my special burn cream and wrapped up. So please excuse blurry photos because they were taken with one hand as was the typing of this post. And it's taken ages!
