MOSQUITO SPRAY AND PLUGS
Make sure you take your own film with you as these can be expensive in Kusadasi Its a good idea to take a plug in mosquito repelent with you. And plug it in before you go out in the evenings. Make sure the doors and windows are shut as well.
The Main Bazaar and Others
There is so much shopping to be had in Kusadasi that it becomes a little overwhelming. Not only that, but it seems that virtually every shopping area comes with the title, "Bazaar." While walking along Attaturk Blvd., close to the Balikci Limani (Harbor), we saw the sign for the "Main Bazaar" (picture 1), which actually was a lovely jumble of pedestrian-only streets lined with shops filled with Turkish carpets, crafts, leather, brass, jewelery and other goods. Street kiosks sell some items such as postcards for as little as 10 for 1 Euro which were too tempting for me to ignore --- the post office is located just on B. Heyrettin Blvd. just down from Liman Square. If you are feeling hungry, a tasty meal at one of the cafes here is only steps away.
More than the shopping itself, I was drawn to the streetscape--cobblestone streets, palm trees, lofty birdhouses, exotic tiled fountains, colorful awnings and other eye catchers.

Kousadasi, a sudden trip
"An exciting trip"
One August night I saw a dream, a midnight summer dream.
I followed this...
It was this sudden trip to Kusadasi.
I had been there before 9 years in a cruise. A lot changed from that time but the smelling of spices in the air remained the same...
12 hours by ship from Pireas port to Samos island, 2 hours by ferry to Kusadasi...
It was a long trip...
I took this photo to remember those reflections of the early morning sun in the Aegean sea...to remember the feelings of that sudden trip.
