|Scene from Northeast Alanya to the Kale hill, it's there 29.7.2016|
Friends wanted to go there because in the centrum humidity was 84% and temperature 38C . They didn't want to sit and sweat in the office. Up on the mountain we felt even cold, difference was so big. No everybody are sweatting even without doing anything. Just to be present is enough. This feels like Finnish sauna in 55 degrees. Pool water and sea water are very warm :)) . Swimming mattress is also ready for use, so it's time to be more active in beach living.

But just as I thought there was also other meaning behind that meeting... My friend wanted to introduce to me one man. When I loked him I thought he might be propably between 60-65 years old. Reality was that I made quite a big misscalculation... he was 40+. He was younger than me, but he looked like grandfather. Ok, he told about his buildings etc and I saw that he had money, but he didn't have self-respect, looks or poise. He was kind and wealthy, ok, but not interesting. And it's very difficult for others to be even interesting, because that function is already reserved, but that friend just didn't know it, didn't believe it or didn't agree my earlier choise. I suppouse the last one.

Yesterday I did my first mocha cake here, because I had good reason to bake something. When there were four eggs and sugar on the bowl and I understood that I have to do all work by hand I thought it takes hours to make it ready, but again that turkish whisk (beater?) surprised me. It was not very difficult or didn't take so long time. When mocha cake was ready, I needed to take quite a many test peaces :)) before I understood why it tastes different than in Finland... because I had used olive oil and olive oil's taste came throw of all the other tates. Not bad but different.
From vegetable market I bought fresh figs, and some of them went to sallad and some to the jam. Earlier I have been made fig jam by using dried figs, but today I thought fresh are the same. They were not. It was tasting "not good", not sweet enough and :P like fresh figs. So I added little sugar, cinnamon and orange flesh, and the result was much more better than the original. I like it. If I'd have more time I would like to add also some carnation, but friend came before I found that spice from my kitchen.
I learned Friday that I need to convert my Finnish driving licence to a Turkish one before I have been living here 6 months. After that six months it is much more difficult. I'm lucky that I was 2015 so long time in Finland that my earlier Ikamet Izni fell through, because now government counts my living here again from zero. Earlier I didn't convert my driving licence and days ended. Now I have new possibility, but I can't waste time now because I need and I want to keep that driving licence legally. Process is not very difficult, just to run from office to an other and pay, and fill some forms and go to the doctor before that. So it asks only money, endurance and local helper (again). That's life and life without surprises is boring... who wants boring life? Me, sometimes. When lots of things are happening all the time, even boring sounds very attractive. Maybe.
