Last weekend, we, as 5-6 people, had a great time in Yeni Liman, Karaburun, Izmir.
The small boutique hotel we stay in can be checked at http://www.nisanyan.net/otl_view.asp?id=570&brMode=s1
It is called Ata’s place and Mr. Ata and the fisherman Uncle Erol are the ones who make this place more special than anything else…
Words would not be enough to describe the food we had at each meal. They were totally composed of the bread that the see granted to Uncle Erol’s fishing net everyday and all were enriched by Ata’s special recipes.
Uncle Erol is a more than 72 years old, half Greek- half Turkish fisherman, originally from Istanbul and he has even a fan club at facebook !!! It is hard to explain how nice to listen his stories when he is drinking 3-4 glasses of raki every night and incredible to see that he jumps out of his bed every morning at 5-6 am to throw his net for the next meal…
The sea was just in front of our small house and our veranda.
It was just green behind us on the hills…you dont see around many of those ugly concrete buildings that started to cover the coasts of Turkey
And, the music gatherings with the speacial participation of Mr.Incirci and the “Baglama” player Mr. Mustafa were breathtaking…
Thanks to all who made this holiday very special for us…
