Izmir-Beach Life

A typical day at Mustafa’s summer house:

Sleeping in until ten and waking up to the smell of a homemade Turkish breakfast

Eating breakfast (including freshly picked tomatoes) out on the back porch with a view of the backyard

Going to the beach: sunbathing and swimming (floating) in the sea

Eating fresh, perfectly sun-ripened peaches from the garden as a mid-afternoon snack

Taking a late afternoon nap

Eating a homemade Turkish dinner/having a BBQ with lots of Turkish relatives

Failing asleep to the sound of crickets

After a summer filled with foggy forcasts and biology courses it feel unbelievably good to finally have a real summer.
