Sea view from Chora Samothrace 

Yesterday we left Greece en route to Bahrain. We spent our last day walking around the little town of Chora, the capital of Samothrace. 

We had a light lunch before heading to the port where we took a ferry to Alexandroupolis. It was a relatively short drive to the border. Crossing the Greek-Turkish border went very smoothly.

It was sad leaving Greece, we had such a great time there. The Greek people and government were very hospitable. We enjoyed the places we visited and we will miss our old friends and the ones we were very fortunate to meet this time around.

Today we drove across beautiful Turkey going through Istanbul, Ankara and now in Nigde where we spent the night. On our way, we stopped to take photos and talk to Turkish people about what we do (colourful cars do attract curious people).

One of the interesting spots is Salt Lake, we were here two years ago and earlier when we were heading to Greece. It's always a nice site. Ali joined the visitors and walked on the salt crystals.

We stopped in Nigde in a little hotel called Osmanbey to rest after a long drive and get ready for tomorrow.
