The island was no where to be seen even though we knew it was there.
Still can’t get good internet. Left early and stopped just past Alexndroupoli on the beach to use some of our Greek data before crossing into Turkey. Moved on about 1400hrs. A fast road to the border. John took over driving so I could do the clearance.
Leaving Greece was quick and easy with a stamp to prove it. Then across the physical border with soldiers standing in their little huts at both ends of the cause way and either side of that purple mark and the two nations flags.
Turkish passport control guy was very friendly even had my hand kissed!!!
Next customs he had a little look inside and in one of the outside lockers.
John received an extra stamp in his passport for the vehicle temporary import. So by 1500hrs we were driving down the Turkish highway.
Initial thoughts that the paddocks are tidier than Greek ones but no rocks just here.
The Turks are sure proud of their national flag. It is flown at every opportunity.
Still lots of snow hanging around in clumps.
Drove into Kesan. Traffic not so well organized just tends to flow in town. But no pushing and shoving.
I finally found a bank that would give me some money. ING bank. Then I bought some Baklava then a vodaphone SIM. 95TL about A$24 for 6GB. But would take an hour before it works.
Back to the truck to find John and to escape the busy town.
