Day 2: Olympos - Pamucak
In the morning the sun was shining and we hung wet things to dry on a rope. Ran to swim - the water is warm and clear. After breakfast, local Turks, whom we met yesterday, called us guests, treated us to tea, tomatoes, medlar (a plum-sized berry that looks like a juicy pear) and a popular local dish - beans in tomato sauce. And we treated them to buckwheat, which they had never tried, Easter and crackers) Group photo with our friend in Kemer
Having gathered, we went to the center of Kemer in order to buy food and sit in a cafe with Wi-Fi. The Turks cook great and do not skimp on laying down full plates. Some unusual building in Kemer

Finally we got on the road to Olympos. Oh those climbs! True, at the end there was a long serpentine descent, where we came off. I also learned the limits of my underperforming brakes.

We could spend the night there, but we go further - it's still far before sunset.
The road often went up
Areas with beautiful views
After a long climb, we were pleased with a quick descent down)

Our track for today:
Having left for the beach near Olympos, we decided to put up tents right on the sand. They had dinner with oatmeal in milk with raisins and yogurt. Local yogurt is similar to Ukrainian sour cream. And it cost us 5 lire (25 UAH) for 1.5 kg. At first, a strong wind blew, we even had to put stretch marks on the tent, but by night it subsided. Lightning flashed in the distance, but we were dry. The stars are shining and it's time for me to go to bed. We drove 40 km, climb 700 meters.
