Bafa Golu

This is lake Bafa Golu in Turkey as seen from the ancient settlement of Heraklea. It is less than 90km from the modern resort of Bodrum but is a world away with shepherds minding their flocks and some people still using donkeys to tranport goods.

If such a large lake was in Britain, it would no doubt be drowning in B & Bs and "organic" restaurants. Turkey is still effortlessly organic and thankfully our visit to this lake involved no one else apart from two friendly (but large) local dogs (one pictured with his back turned !)
