After a very informative morning at Bodrum's castle that houses the Museum of Marine Archaeology
, we sat down for lunch with diver/physicist/guide Don Frey. A wealth of information & fun, Don lead us to the best mezze in town which of course, finished with thick, muddy Turkish coffee (mind you, it started with raki - a local aniseed based drink). Our coffee was served in outfits of decorative silver armour, peak hatted & all. On draining our coffees, Don instructed us to rotate them three times, think of a question/desire, turn the cup to saucer & let for a while whilst the coffee grinds cooled and cascaded down. On cooling, cup was flipped & one could read the grinds evident on the ceramic interior. To me, it looked like mountains, peaks & precipices - a time of reflection & a slower pace!! To others, it was a woman holding something above her head or dancing. Well, I am taking dancing with your hands in the air like you just don't care in the Atlas Mountains!!! With some poolside time at the Polo Club after in Marrakech.
