Has anyone who has been to Turkey wondered what that little wheel is for that is situated behind the toilet basin?.
It is in fact to control the flow of water through the little nozzle in the basin that washes the person after doing natures bidding.
It saves the use of paper and is very hygeinic.
That is why you eat with and shake hands with the right hand.

Icmeler, the place to be
"Marti la Perla"
Woke at 8.30am and had a nice refreshing shower. Then we drove on to our hotel in Icmeler “Hotel Marti la Perla”. After checking in, we were told we could have the room at around 2.00pm. Therefore, we had a late breakfast at “Artemis” where we could chat to our friends. Finally it was time to unpack our suitcases and hang our clothes up on hangers. Our room was on the 1st floor and had a balcony with sea view.
We then went to have a look around the hotel. It was a lovely hotel with a big swimming pool, large sun terrace with beautiful laid-out gardens and a good private beach. There were swinging seats where you could dream away until your hearts content.
The food was excellent, all mealtimes in buffet form. You could drink as much wine (red and white), coffee, 20 sorts of tea, and 8 sorts of juice as you wanted all day long. If you wanted to take a drink to the beach or up to your room, you could get a bottle of water at the bar.
The hotel room was big enough, with a balcony, where you could sit with 2 persons, plus a table. In the room was a king size bed with mattress, lots of storage space for clothes, a dressing table, a fridge, TV and a telephone. There was a large sized bathroom with a shower, bath and toilet. No complaints there!
There was an animation team, and everyday they organized darts, water polo etc. Every evening there was something to do, from bingo to a firework show and from a ‘Miss’ competition to a live band. We didn’t find everything to our taste, but still enough to do and see. Usually in the evening we’d go out walking here and there, and a bit of chatting with our friends from “Artemis”
