Lesbos in Lesvos, that should have been the story we went with. Would have been able to avoid all the awkward conversations if we thought of that line earlier. Right mu? Too bad we didn't, but this way we've got heaps of memories to laugh about. I've got a question that i'm dying to ask mukfa, do you wanna go back to that island??
7:00 am, finally arriving in Ayvalik. The night bus from istanbul was long, loooooong. You know the feeling when you've been sitting for a while, and you get up, and you realize you forgot how to walk. That feeling + just waking up + in a new town = our morning in ayvalik. All we knew was that we wanted some ayvalik tost. And so we got us some.
After breakfast we took a dolmus to cunda island, cause we heard that the church there is a must see. Upon arrival we asked around, 'where's the church?' and we were told to walk up the hill. So we walked up the hill. And kept walking up the hill. Till we saw the church, completely covered in scaffolding! Aha! Saw some top notch scaffolding, well done.
And then we went to Midili, Mytilene, there's about a billion ways to spell the name of that island.
There's a giant castle on top of the town. The walk up the hill was a bit of a drag, you know, especially in 35 degree weather, but the breeze in the castle ruins.. it was gooooooood.
As yas and mu would know, I've recently become obsessed, OBSESSED I TELL YOU, with Adini Feriha Koydum (a turkish drama). Finished the first season in three days, that's 24 episodes and each of them are about 1:45 min = about 42 hours! Oh gawd.
Iyi Bayramlar + Eid Mubarak to everyone x
edit: in the last two days that it took me to write up this post, i've powered through another 15 episodes, CRAY.
