Weather is nice, with a ‘GS playlist’ on iPod, it’s Kaş.. (There is also a place named Kaş, in
After Maçka, road to Sumela Monastery,

Purifying the soul phase.. Reading book, watching the forest, listening to the water..
A tea break.. Then i heard hitting noises, a small investigation and this:
Following the coast line, pass Yomra and turn South from Arakli. A great road, fantastic scenery.. Everything is green but the asphalt. Feels like i’m stable but the mountains and the forest are flowing.. Like an inner journey:
From this point, the road turns bad. Lorries and machines..
Less green, but new colors appear:
Road is becoming worse as i gain altitude, but it’s ok.
While riding slow and consuming the scenery around, I was stuck. By the help of the two road workers, who appeared from nowhere, I’m free again.

I'm probably on the other side of the planet, straight down from you.
