Cappadocia to Mersin

Our next destination was now Mersin, located in the south of Turkey. We first wanted to go further east, but finally decided against it, because there was just before a big earthquake with over 50,000 dead. We didn’t want to get into the situation of aftershocks there and besides, the infrastructure was missing everywhere. So we decided to go first to Mersin and from there along the Mediterranean coast towards Izmir.
