Gökçeada to Çanakkale


We breakfasted with our hosts again and conversed using sign language, the Turkish-English dictionary and a photo display on our laptop. Turkish pronunciation has some subtleties that we have not yet grasped. Then we made our departure and headed for the internet cafe in Yenibademli. This village is full of people, pansiyoni, little cafes and shops, gardens, fruit trees, giving it a friendly, social atmosphere, unlike most Australian suburbs.

At the ferry terminal  we once again sailed past a queue of cars well over a kilometre long. A wild wind was blowing and whipping up the sea. We had to ride against the wind back to Eceabat, then on to the Çanakkale ferry. Hope it dies down or swings around by tomorrow.
