For the last five days I have transversed the Turkish countryside. My trek outside of Istanbul began by flying to Adana, geographically and climate-wise the Florida of Turkey, where I met up with my frienda Özgür and Matt. From Adana we took an 18 hour (one way) bus trip to Trabzon, a city on the coast of the Black Sea where we visited the famous Sumela Monastary. Although the roundtrip (36+ hours) was more than the actual amount of time we spent in Trabzon, the trip was incredible. Pictures up soon.
