    Semi permanent make up

    I noticed a salon up towards cafe dalyano (on opposite side of the road) advertising semi perm makeup. Has anyone had this done in Dalyan? I looked into this in UK but it was quite pricey (I want my eyebrows and possibly upper eyeliner done) any feedback much appreciated!

    DALYAN - puppy needs home

    Whilst out walking my dog yesterday, we saw a young (4-6months?)male dog zig zagging up the iztuzu beach road. The pup was disorientated and distressed. I ASSUME he has been dumped, given his behaviour. My dog wanted to play but the pup was too scared and ran away. On our way back, the pup is...

    Limon cafe

    Just spent a lovely afternoon at limon (in square by migros) and thoroughly recommend it! I had a frappe, salad and then managed to squeeze in tiramisu... Most definitely the best tiramisu I've had in turkey (and it's my favourite dessert). Goodluck to them, nice place and nice people :)

    Spotted a Dahl's whip snake (Platyceps najadum) on my walk with the dog this evening (my first snake sighting here!). I figured it was a colubrid, but had to rely on good ol google for an id. Unfortunately, it sped off into the reed beds before I could get a pic so the attached picture is not...
