Rain, wind and snow.

I spent the day in an internet cafe.

It snowed (Ayancik, Black Sea coast of Turkey)


Dinner was Lahmacun once again. But this time it was Kurdish Lahmacun. You would think that all Lahmacun is equal. However, Kurdish Lahmacun is all good. Herby, spicy paste is served along with the salad. The best I’ve had. And I’ve had many.

Lahmacun addiction continues in Ayancik Town, Turkey

However you pronounce that, it sure looks awesome! Enjoy Turkey. BTW, what do the Turkish call Turkey, because I always thought it a strange name for a country (and I suspected some poor anglification somewhere back in history)

Yum!!!! They give you a good helping too, don't they. I see the snows back. You have had a bit of a run without snow, apart from your finding the lake adventure. The altitude must be quite high for it to snow so near a sea.

You sure are one for an adventure. I just can't imagine lugging belongings and bike in those snowy conditions. It would need to be a super fabulous lake to make up for the hard yakka. Some very nice photos though.

Joel, in Turkish, Turkey is spelt Türkiye, pronounced Turkiye. See the Wikipaedia article for the origins – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey#Etymology

Nana, that's the thing. It wasn't a very muchly fabulous lake after all. In summer I imagine it would be OK but…the ride down the mountain made it all worth it though.

I thought Turkey in Turkish would be Chykkin or Dukk

That lahmacun looks mouth-wateringly delicious. Pity you didn't have access to such great tucker while on the Pamir Highway!

Aunty Les, I would have killed for this food on the Pamir Highway! Well, almost…
