After a long gap…

Camels2015R That would definitely be my picture of the month for January!

I am really not sure why we have gone so quiet.  February seemed to disappear down the back of the sofa.  We didn’t do much except try to get out to the shops between showers of rain.  I guess it’s winter.  We did mean to get away this year but an unexpected trip to London in December meant that, by the time we got round to looking at possibilities, everything was either rainy or too expensive.

We have just got back from a more scheduled trip to see family in the UK and friends in Ireland.  But, whilst we work out what to do with the blog and process more photographs, here are some of the camel wrestling in Selçuk back on the third Sunday of January.  It was a glorious sunny day – quite warm – and the crowds were out and cooking, eating, drinking, playing music and dancing on the tables.  The photos, sadly, lack the sounds and smells which are very much a part of the experience.  We hope they convey some of the atmosphere.
