Great mcmtanyel 2013-12-01 21:23

Hello Ourania,
So, this is what the Aegean looks like in late November. I have studied Google maps and your photo and concluded that the Turkish coast visible from here should be the vicinity of Didyma, am I right?
I love the evening hues reflecting off of the eastern shore.
Kind Regards,

Default To mcmtanyel: Hello Murat

Hello dear Murat,
thank you very much! This is one of the many faces of the Aegean in winter
The coast we see across the sea is way to the south of Didyma. I studied the map too but am not quite sure, it must be somewhere between Gundogan and Gulluk (I'm sorry I can't use the accents of the Turkish writing).
In 1987, when the relations between our countries were critical, a teacher from the school of Ayia Marina and his class decided to make a contact with a Turkish school from across the sea. They drew a line on the map which took them to Gulluk. That first contact led to a strong friendship and twinning. This friendship is still going on, some of today's pupils are children of the pupils that made the start.
All the best,
