Our weekend in the Izmir area continued and we were able to see some amazing parts of Turkey. We drove to Çeşme which is only about an hour drive along the coast away from Izmir. Çeşme is a seaside town with all the charm of seaside towns around the world. The pristine blue water was so inviting. Even Lucky Dragon wanted to shed his coat and go swimming. He is our little boy for sure.
We walked around and met the warm, friendly people that lived there. As we were leaving we decided that we should use the bathroom one more time and found a pay-as-you-go bathroom that are common in Europe. The man that was there was eating a new bag of cookies and literally gave Tau’aho half of the stack. I know better, from past experience, than to refuse when people try to give him something. They view it as offensive. So we said ‘thank you’ and Lucky boy was SO happy with his new treasures. I had to laugh that we paid 1 lira (.50 cents USD) for the bathroom and he probably gave us 3 lira worth of cookies! Not many places you have that strength of kindness.
