Pinsharp

Hi Lisa

To daddo: Gjirokaster

Hi Klaudio

To batalay: Perge

Merhaba Bulent

I made it to Perge which was included in the same tour with Aspendos and Side, but not Termessos. There is a ruined city in Albania called Appolonia. I did not detour there though.

Hi Eleu

I ended up using the pontoon in the distance for swimming. The water is deep there. It's the sea urchins (sand dollars in the US) that cling to the rocks that worry me. Sharp needle...
