The Idyllic View Towards Greece in Kas, Turkey
Sunday, May 16th, 2004: Dalyan to Kas, Turkey
3 more buses, another 5 hours, and we arrive in Kas, a beautiful town on the Mediterranean. We stroll the streets, lounging in the waterfront cafés, and we think this could be the Italian Riviera. It is really quite romantic.
Just outside town there is a Greek amphitheatre that was later rebuilt by the Romans, situated so that the audience looks out over the sea. We climb up to the top and the whole group is entranced by the view. Just across the water is an island that, by some accident of history, is part of Greece.
The view is so idyllic that we return around dusk, and watch the ancient light fade.
