The houses in Tacir were nestled close together, cascading down the hillside
We photographed the village from every angle
We saw more men here, than we did in the village of Sansarak
This happy lady was busy sewing
This village also had its family bread ovens
Our next stop was the village of Ömerli. This village, although now faded, showed signs of a former glory. In the past, it was an important part of the silk trade, and the merchants operated from here, but many of their former mansions have now fallen into disrepair.
We saw evidence of Roman ruins. Here is the top of a
Roman column by a doorway
The village is obviously moving with the times.
Here is a solar panel on a village roof
After exploring the villages we headed back into town for lunch at Lezzet Lokantası again. I had an Iskender Kebab. It was the best I had ever tasted in all my years in Istanbul.
The Lefke Gate is the most impressive gate, although it is no longer used for traffic. It is, however, used to carry coffins through to the cemetery beyond. A rather grand exit from the world.
This was the end of our visit, but the memories and images remain. what a great trip. I do hope we have another one soon!
