Thanks Karen. Jeremy Seal is an excellent author and has written two books about Turkey - " A Fez of the Heart" and " Santa Claus" - which I thoroughly reccomend. Both are out in paperback, and if you visit Datca they are available in our local English/Tutkish run bookstore - Civan, near the hospital.

What a lovely heart-warming article which serves to remind us of one of the reasons we fell in love with the country and its people all those years ago.

I agree about Jeremy Seal. I own "A Fez of the Heart" and thoroughly enjoyed it. "Santa Claus" will go on the wish list!

A Fez of the Heart is one of my favourite books. I'm reading A Life with A View at the moment about a couple building a house on the Black Sea back in the '90s. Lots of very useful insights into communication problems!

Thanks Karen, great read.

I love Jeremy Seal's writing and his enthusiasm for Turkey. I thoroughly enjoyed his 'A Fez of the Heart' but haven't read 'Santa Claus' yet. I also loved De Berniere's 'Birds without Wings' which I read when I first moved here. I enjoyed it do much I limited myself to just reading a few pages a day as I didn't want the story to end.

I enjoyed it do much I limited myself to just reading a few pages a day as I didn't want the story to end.

I did exactly the same thing, because normally I whizz through books, and I was staying down in Dalaman when I was reading this and really, really restricted myself to make it last. I recommended it to my Mum the other day so she has my copy currently.

Another nice little article by Jeremy Seal in the Times. This time the article features the ancient region of Phrgia.

I was lost deep in Turkey, beyond the tourists, beyond the road signs and beyond, it seemed, even the Turks, when a whole family of them rode to my rescue.

Their horse-drawn cart clattered through the weird volcanic stonescape, with its weather-sculpted “fairy chimneys”, to pull up with a haul on the reins opposite the wound-down window of my hire car.

No sooner had I mentioned that I was after the Castle of Avdalaz — a line worthy, even in my terrible Turkish, of Tintin — than the cart had turned around and was leading me back in the direction it had just appeared from.

Let's hope the article doesn't attract hordes to our valley. :wink:
