I am not too sure about you drinking fishy beer but it is great to see your mugshot again.

Truth is I am green with envy at the sunshine. Every time we fly over Turkey, it seems to be deep beneath a carpet of snow.

We are intrigued - did you fly this year, do you have a vehicle there, or travel by dolmus, or what?

Still unsure of our winter destination this year . . .

Kind regards to you both!

We flew out and had a hire car, living in the Kaya valley a car is essential.

Hi Don,

You're looking fit and well, must be all that sunshine.

Wet and windy here all weekend so I've been doing some decorating - its warmer inside.

You're in the right place.

Hello, thanks for posting - I am personally very pleased that we have not lost you as a MHF Member and contributor.

You look very relaxed and well - maybe result of not having that long drive. I am glad you are enjoying your winter there.

Basia's sister and her man have now moved into the house they have had built near Oren. They are still waiting for a 'phone line, but in usual Turkish style, they have found a contact who has promised the necessary two poles and line will be installed next week - watching this space.

You say cost of living is lower, but we are hearing that booze has gone up considerably - any comment?

Carry-on enjoying.

Geoff

Hi Geoff,

I don't drink often but have beer now and again. The price of a beer is about 7-8 lita slightly up on last year. The exchange rate (3.24 lira to the £) is very good. We don't eat large meals but can have an evening meal with a drink for about £15.

Interesting on prices, which you are obviously comparing with UK.

But here in Poland 2 quid for a beer would be considered extortionate.

No wonder Basia's Polish sister is complaining.

But as you say, you do not drink much so it does not matter.

It has just turned to winter here, so enjoy your sun Don. We are escaping in January - to Andorra(via Manchester) for ? ....the snow!

Then again in March to revisit a rental cottage in La Palma(Canaries)

If we do not communicate befor, have a Happy Christmas!
