so continuing on from where i left off - actually before we boarded the sailboat we stayed at the grand yazici (yatici? yatzici? hmm) in bodrum which can be best explained as somewhat between a tropical paradise meets heaven crossed with a really good launder - they hosted the best robes and slippers out of all the hotels. this was for sure a dreamy stop. we also ventured to the ancient abandoned city ephesus and braved the million degree heat. this place was great, all preserved marble streets and mosaics and one seriously big library. outside stalls also promised 'genuine fake watches', is there any other kind? + i discovered straws that resemble fireworks.
