Turkish Delights Three
The view from our room after the gardener trimmed ton's of branches off the Bouganvillia.
We then came back and I had a nap, while Ralph had a read. I am just about to have a shower before we go out to dinner (posh again) tonight we have booked into the restaurant we went to on our first night. they are having a “Tandir Night” I am led to believe it is lamb cooked slowly for two days, I think it may be similar to the Greek Klephtiko, which is delicious. I hope I am not going to be disappointed, haven’t been so far.
The Tandir was delicious and we had a lovely evening. Today we hired bikes, yes you heard me, and we hired bikes at 10am and went for a two hour ride. Ok we stopped several times so it was probably a one and a half hour ride. There is a photo to prove it, still in the camera. I did learn a lesson today though, cycling and arthritic wrists do not mix. I terrain here is rough, not smooth ride at all. So it has got Ralph worrying that I won’t be able to cycle when we get back home. The bikes we were supposed to get last year are on the to do list for when we get home. Now do I go ahead and by one or will my wrists hurt no matter what surface I ride on? All advice welcome.
