The next morning, it was cloudy, but no rain. We passed thru Samsun where the week before there had been some bad floods. The road had been cleared off, but there was still mud on it, and we could see where the flood had washed over the whole area, washing away cars, & generally making a mess. I had heard that a lot of people died during it. We rode along the coast, & got to Ordu, where we spent the nite. There is a mountain next to the town, with a cable ar ride to the top, so we went on that. Great views, you could see for many miles.
We were looking for some dinner, & passed by a window where a guy was making these small pizzas, so we decided to try them. They were SO good! Thin crust, with sheep meat & some other stuff on them. Its one of the best things I have had in Turkey, and they do have a lot of tasty food here!

Floods in samsun, at least the main road was open, we didnít see the rest of the town

Traffic sucked

All of the rivers dumping into the sea were full of dirt & mud
