Late Valentine's day greetings!
We went to ski at Uludag this weekend and found some very foggy weather! The top of Uludag is around 2500 metres and it spent most of the weekend in the clouds! Maybe you can make out faintly some skiiers through the fog there in the back of the photo.
This is recycling, Turkish style! There is hardly any official recycling here, but people like this man do a good job or sorting and recycling the rubbish. He was taking plastic, tins etc from the waste bin and putting it in that big white carton. Who knows where it will go next?
"this photo is taken in mudanya 30 km from bursa ..a nice little town...it was nicer before when we used to swim in the sea.the water is not clean any more unfortunatelly ...it seems clean but they found louds of collibasili(microbs) that can be dangerous..anyway the people are still swimming in the hot summer days ...you can see it feels like deserted but it is not...louds of appartments had been built up in the hills ...but still you have the sea to look at and feel like deserted:))"
This restaurant claims to be Bursa's first mantı maker, although it has only been open since 1975. Mantı are small parcels of pasta filled with meat, a bit like Italian ravioli. Like a lot of dishes here they are eaten with yogurt.
I've posted a photo of the fish market at Mudanya before but yesterday we got there early and there was a lot more fish than usual.
If you look carefully maybe you can also see the different fish which are found at this time of year. The most common fish here are sea bass and sea bream, which are available all year round. Yesterday there was also red mullet, mackerel and bonito.
