Sığacık, Turkiye

Sığacık is Turkey's first “Citta Slow”, that is, a quiet city.

3 to 4 years ago, the photogenetic quality of the perfectly restored streets of Sığacık (Seferihisar's Beach Town), plus the weekly market that's set up here on Sundays, and the less-traveled ancient city of Teos were enough.to make one fall in love with this gem.

Lately I have heard that some travelers that have returned were a little bit disillusioned with some of the changes they found. It had become popular with the visitors coming back again and again and spreading the word about it's charms.

So, out of town entrepreneurs settled into the houses and started businesses and all of a sudden the calmness was nowhere to be found. So goes the saying: "You can please some of the people some of the time, but you'll never please all the people all of the time..."

It is the same old story that has echoed throughout the coastal havens all along the coast of Turkiye since tourism became a money-maker in the Republic of Turkiye. It is inevitable that change is going to occur and ruffle feathers.

Valley of Fire - Nevada

Before Valley of Fire officially became a designated Nevada State Park, a road was built through the valley as part of the Arrowhead Trail to connect Salt Lake City with Los Angeles.

Its dazzling red sandstone rock formations, ancient petroglyphs, and its quick access from the hyper-busy city of Las Vegas have made it a welcome respite from the less than healthy gambling meccain the desert.

In the 1920s, the “Valley of Fire” was named by an AAA official who was traveling the road at sunset and reportedly explained that the entire region looked as though it was on fire.

Located in the heart of the Mojave Desert, Valley of Fire is about 90 kilometers northeast of Las Vegas via I-15 N and Valley of Fire Highway. Look out for exit 75 marked as Valley of Fire/Lake Mead.

Of all the state and national parks in Nevada, Valley of Fire remains a favored destination.

Kemer is on the Gulf of Antalya, 53 kilometers or 33 miles of sea coast with the foothills of the western Taurus Mountains behind it.

This coast has the typical Mediterranean hot, dry weather and a warm sea. Until the early 1980s this was a quiet rural district covered in orange orchards, but today the town of Kemer and coastal villages in the district play a very important part in tourism in Turkiye.

I went to Kemer in the late 1980's and it was still orange orchards, the harbor was in the process of being dredged and crews had just begun paving the streets in the city center. Club Med was about the only commercial entity in Kemer.

The highway south towards Demre was a small 2 lane road. Demre town center had dirt roads with a couple of blocks of businesses.

20 years later I was completely amazed to see that Demre was then a long row of 5 story apart buildings stretching out of sight down its main street.

Kemer was the ancient Greek city of Idyros and a member of the Lycian League, which after the Ottoman era was called Eski Köy (Old Village until a 23 kilometer or 14 mile long stone wall was built in 1916 - 1917 to channel the mountain stream water.

Its purpose to protect the town from flooding, which until then had been a persistent problem. The name Kemer refers to these walls.

The ruins of the Ionian city of Priene are beautifully located on a slope of Mykale Mountain. They provide a spectacular lookout point over the plain where the river Meander winds its way to the Aegean Sea.

Priene also offers an excellent practical lesson in archeology and history. The main conclusion of any visit to Priene, combined with a cursory reading of literature devoted to this city, is that nothing here is obvious.

The original name of the city was, Kadme, it was founded by the Karians, and it was situated in a different location on the shores of the Aegean Sea.

Researchers speculate that in the place where the Greek colonists settled in and called Priene, there had already been an earlier settlement.

It is likely that, as in the case of Miletus, the origins of this city go back to Minoan times.

It is located in the ancient Lycia region of Anatolia and sits right on the Mediterranean Sea. Çıralı has not yet succumbed to the usual mass tourism so it is a wonderful place to enjoy the comfort of hotels, family-run guest houses and quirky treehouse accomodations near the beach.

It's a bit off the beaten path, but for most that is a plus. My brother built one of the first pansyons there back in the 1990's when the ruins of Olympos were still mostly hidden in the overgrowth at the far end of the beach.

The Turkish government had not yet begun any archeological work on the site yet and my brother and his son used to wander through the untouched ruins.

unique women of the world

Women from around the world that are living on the edge, doing something special, making a difference or generally in possession of a unique nature. In my book these women should be put in positions of power and allowed a chance to see what they would add to our world, instead of the men that promise blah-blah-blah and then fill their own pockets as well as the pockets of their buddies. The way I see it, any of this diverse group of women would be an improvement. These are the kind of women that should be put in positions of power. They would make positive contributions with their time and resources and leave the world better for having been here. And not to mention the fact that they all certainly look far more appealing...

From century to century throughout history the men have ruled the roost in politics and business and relegated the home as the place where the women were to direct their attention and efforts. The women have done their job admirably, but the men have failed miserably in most cases. Their politics are corrupt and their businesses have turned into large greedy corporations. The patriarchal model is evidently not working so well - so maybe it's time to hand the reins over to the women. The wars and conflicts around the world are the result of male dominance in politics, and more often than not, are set in motion to benefit male controlled corporate interests. Turn on the evening news anywhere in the world and you'll see images of angry men in conflict and women and children in flight. It is time for change...

The Girl Who Ran Across Africa

At the age of 27 Emma Timmis became the first female to run the Freedom Trail, a 2,400 kilometer through track from Durban to Cape Town in South Africa. This later led to running West to East across the continent of Africa, from Namibia to Mozambique.

This incredible run took Emma 89 days, covering the distance equal to 94 marathons, or almost 4,000 kilometers.

Emma suffered an injury that kept her at home for an extended period, so she wrote a childrens book about her runs across Africa to inspire young girls. The book is now available from her website at: www.emmatimmis.com
