Day 4 – Cirali

Life in paradise –

Wake up to the sound of chickens outside your cabin.  Discover that there’s no hot water yet (solar heated).  No problem – walk down to the beach for a pre-breakfast swim.  

The water is the perfect temperature – warm enough to be able to go right in, cool enough to be refreshing. And it’s salinity level is high enough that you float, almost on top of the water.

After breakfast, walk down to the end of the beach to explore the ruins of the ancient (~4th century BC) Lycian settlement of Olympos.

Notice the pseudo-door on this sarcophagus, complete with a door pull:

Go back to the cabin and snooze in air-conditioned bliss (paradise is hot and humid).

Enjoy a delicious dinner of yuvalama, a once-a-year special dish made by Sevgi and Ömer, outside under the trees.
