It's my Birthday!

Woke up and thought, today has to be better than yesterday and boy was it ever.

First stop, in an ultra hot valley near an abandoned Greek settlement now a Unesco world heritage site. Kayakoy (oops I spelled Kayaboy by mistake first.....yeah I did have a nice date with a boy the night before)

Then rode along the Mediterranean coast along twisty roads with gorgeous blue inlets like this one below.

Found Kas Diving Campsite and pitched tent in 103F with 99% humidity.

View of bay from the tent

Went for a cave dive and had the same stupid problem with my mask filling up with water. This time I didn't panic, kept clearing it and finally figured out the problem and enjoyed the rest of the diving.

Oh yeah and I didn't have enough weight, finally ended up with 12 kilos in my jacket.

DickyB in Kas came to have a drink with us.

20 year old scotch.

Notice the huge blue yatch in the background?

And finally found my favorite meal Manti!

Found out why its so darn good here, she makes it fresh nightly

Love these little rest areas and trying to brush my hair is not an easy thing.

Stealing from the local orchards; figs

And Pomegranate 

Went into town and had a San Francisco juice drink

Manish bought goggles and we made fun of the instructions....

Wandered around looking for the famous Kas night market but never did find it.

Compensated ourselves with an excellent meal of stuffed peppers, eggplant and lamb, soup, yogurt.

All for 34 TL

Went back to the Kas Dive Camping and this is the view from my tent!

And the next morning before everyone is up.

Got on the bikes for another short 100km ride to Mt Olympus treehouses.
Stopped at this roadside pastry shop and gorged ourselves on all kinds of pastries. 

And I'll leave you with this funny photo!
