Citizens of most of the European countries need visas to enter Turkey, but all you need is a valid passport and 10 euros/dollars/pounds.
Turkish money is called Turkish lira, and 1 euro is around 1750000 liras. Money can sometimes be a problem there, because you can easily get confused with all that zeros, but later you get used to it.
While in Turkey you must try Turkish coffee! It is made of a roasted and the minced coffee beans. The taste of turkish coffee is really strong!
Now, here are the instructions for making a perfect cup of turkish coffee:
1. For every cup of coffee you require, pour an equal amount of cold water into a cold ibrik (ibrik is that small pot on the pic in which you make the coffee).
2. For every cup required, add two coffee spoons of our Turkish coffee.
3. Most people prefer Turkish coffee with sugar, although it can be drunk without (sade). Add two coffee spoons of sugar to the ibrik for every cup required to make a medium sweet brew. Adjust to suit your individual taste.
4. Mix the water, sugar and coffee in the ibrik once with the coffee spoon.
5. Place the ibrik onto the top of a stove and cook on the lowest possible flame.
6. As the mixture begins to simmer, the surface of the mixture will begin to foam up. As it appears, pour it (the foam, and only the foam) in equal measures into each cup.
7. Continue the above instruction until all the mixture has gone (2 boils should be enough).
8. The coffee should be allowed to settle for a minute or two before drinking to allow the sediments to settle.
9. Turkish coffee is traditionally accompanied with a glass of cold water.
Market Day on the Peninsula!
Fresh fruit and vegetables can be bought in the vegetable market every Thursday and Friday in Bodrum. There are bargains in clothing (such as cheap t-shirts and jeans but don't expect those great bargain levi's to be the authentic items!), fabrics (like the lace specialities from the peninsula) and household goods can be found in the dry good markets on Tuesdays. The markets are to be found quite close to the bus station.
Tour operators offer other market day tours around the peninsula to places like Bitez and Turgetreis.
