We took a taxi from Goreme back to the airport in Kayseri then flew to Izmir on Turkish Airlines, an airline that serves tasty meals even on short in-country flights. You've barely time to eat before they're back to collect trays.

We then picked up a rental car in Izmir to drive to the coastal town of Cesme for lunch. The only challenge with driving in Turkey was figuring how to pay at the automated toll booths on the highway.

After lunch we drove to the nearby town of Alaçati where we'd hotel reservations. But we couldn't find the hotel, this being a time before the ubiquitous mobiles with map software, so we stopped in a cafe. One of the young fellows in the cafe offered to escort us to the Hotel Incirliev by having us follow him as he drove to the hotel on his motorbike.

2. Last days in Turkey

I'm at the end of reviewing photos from our 2010 trip to Turkey where we visited Istanbul, Goreme, and three towns on the coast, Alaçati, Cesme, and the ruins of Ephesus in Selçuk.

Below are the last shots of the coast around Cesme and Alaçati. We then drove back to Izmir, ditched the car, flew to Istanbul, spent one night, and then caught a flight home.

Dog pack      
Loose dogs are common in Turkey. While we were on a walk in Alaçati a pack began to menace us. You can just barely make them out, they are to the right of the building on the left. Fortunately a local fellow saw us and came to our rescue. He scared the dogs away and we went on our walk.
