Lake Koycegiz in the south of Turkey, is very close to Dalaman airport, and
almost an hour away from both Marmaris and Fethiye, the two of the most
important touristic centers of Turkey.
Around Koycegiz lake you can find many touristic attractions such as the
ancient city of Kaunos, the famous beach at Iztuzu, the Dalyan village, the
labyrinth of the twining channels of Dalyan that lead to Kaunos and Iztuzu
beach, the famous Tombs of Kings on the steep cliffs just opposite the Dalyan
village, and the mud baths at Sultaniye kaplicalari or spas are all within
the borders of the quiet Koycegiz village.
The waters of the lake flow through the channels of Dalyan and eventually
they open into the sea between Iztuzu beach and the ancient Kaunos city.
Iztuzu beach is famous for its perfect sand and the Caretta Caretta sea

Today I arrived in Bodrum for a long weekend. Divan Palmira kindly declined
my reservation request after my 2007 review of the hotel. They were nice
enough to recommend another boutique hotel in the area, so I checked in to
Maca Kizi Hotel. My first half day here so far, the view from my room is
fantastic. It is too early to write a formal review but if they don't royally
screw it up between now and Sunday morning, this hotel has a potential to me
my Bodrum summer stop going forward.
Today it rained here. I see it rain in Bodrum for the first time since more
than a decade of my summer vacations here.
I did walk to Divan Palmira to visit my paparazzi photographer friend Gokhan,
he was not there. I had lunch at Divan Palmira, the young waiter said they
opened the season on May 19 and he thinks today they have five or six rooms
full out of 6... (more)

The principals of Trinity Yachts, John Dane, CEO, and Bill Smith, VP, sat
down with YV & C publisher Fuat Kircaali to speak about the growth of the
charter industry and how it affects them as yacht builders.
Trinity Yachts, founded in 1988, is already known as the number one American
shipyard. Since 1990, their 38-acre Louisiana facility - including 10 roofed
acres - has turned out 33 hulls. Seven yachts are currently under
construction. How did this dynamic company grow so rapidly?
John Dane, CEO of Trinity Yachts, was running Trinity Industries' marine
group in 1988, with 22 shipyards around the country building mostly
commercial and military boats. Bill Smith, who was doing sales and marketing
for the company, foresaw the rise of the yacht business and the two decided
Their first yacht commission was fortuitous. It was designed by the leading
Let Turkey light up your imagination. Three great things embody Turkey. Just
a four hour flight away from international London, it has a culture which is
profoundly different, distinctly unfamilar. A land on the very cusp of Europe
and Asia, with two heads simultaneously facing both east and west, it
embodies the magic and mysticism of the orient. Once nomads from Central
Asia, the Turks were for centuries the middlemen of the world, famed
merchants uniting three continents - Europe, Africa, and Asia, as far east as
China. Today, its people are famed for their warmth and hospitality, a gift
of their nomadic ancestry and Islam’s code of respect for strangers in
a strange land.
The second great thing about Turkey is its age. The place is steeped in
history. It’s the site of some of the very earliest cities, like Çatal
Hoyuk, stretching back 10,000 years. E... (more)

The city of Priene, an Ionian settlement, was laid out on Mount Mycale
(Samsun) and contained many famous examples of Hellenistic art and
architecture. The original location of the city has never been found but it
was probably a peninsula with two harbors. The ruins are from the new city
built in the 4th century BC. It is a small city with 4 or 5 thousand
inhabitants and not of great political significance even if it shared the
same history with the other Ionian cities.
The city is mainly organized in four districts, the political (bouleuterion
and prytaneion), the cultural (Theatre), commercial (a gora) and most
importantly religious (Athena Temple) In addition to the Athena Temple, the
people of Priene erected sanctuaries dedicated to Zeus, Demeter and Egyptian
The city was a member of the Ionian League, and has been bui... (more)
