Fatih, Abdullah, Me, Oguz and Cihangir at Germiyan Konagi

People who contributed to, and improved my trip: Oguz, Fatih, Cihangir, Abdullah, Arif, Yunus and Alp (Turkey)

I got back home around 19.00 and half an hour later we were on our way back out to Germiyan Konagi, to meet a group of Oguz and Fatih's friends. There was quite a large gathering today, with Cihangir, Abdullah, Arif, Yunus and Alp all turning up.

The guys were keen to treat me to some traditional Turkish cuisine, so ordered me Mercimek Soup (Lentil Soup) for starters and then Tirit for the entree, which was chicken and butter sauce served over dried yufka. It was all delicious and there was nothing left on any of our plates by the time that we had finished.

After Dinner we sat around talking, with Cihangir leading the way. He was very keen to talk about History, Politics and just about anything else that could spring into his head.

His knowledge was impressive, although its sometimes plain to see that Turkish people learn a very different History to that which we learn in the West. I can only assume that both have some truth in them and both have distortions of the facts. It was all good natured and entertaining and enjoyed over a few glasses of chay, before we headed home at 23.00.

The following morning i said goodbye to Oguz who was running late for work, but Fatih had already left, as he was on time. I was also running late as usual, so took a quick shower, gathered my belongings and wandered down to the bus station, just in time to catch the 09.30 bus to Bursa (18YTL).
