Hi neighbors, After three months in the US of "licking my wounds," as they say in the cowboy movies, I'm coming home to an empty house. But I won't be alone--I'll be bringing my nephew to stay with me until April. He's a smart, fit 22-year-old with a keen interest in ancient history and a more impressive knowledge of it than I had imagined. And he's so excited about this trip he can hardly contain himself. Since I'd only lived in the area for 2-1/2 months before my husband died, and was spending all that time caring for him, I haven't seen ANYTHING of historical or geological interest on the Bodrum peninsula or surrounding area. Are there any of you who live there year-round and know what's open and what's good to visit this time of year? We'll spend a few days in Istanbul, and I know what to show him there, but once we arrive in Yalikavak it's going to be pretty quiet. I don't even know what the weather will be like. I'd love to meet some of you as well one of these days. I look forward to any suggestions, including restaurants and jazz bars that might be open. Happy New Year to all of you, wherever you may be. Li-Li
As eating out is a favourite pastime of ours, our recommendations for eateries in Yali are Dede and Morgul restaurants. Great food and very friendly owners. We even went for a long weekend to Afyon with Ibrahim and Sue from Morgul to meet and stay with his family. Great time. Dede is open all year round and Morgul in the summer only.
