Since coming back to the UK after spending New Year week in Kalkan, Nige decided he should go back out in a few weeks to check on the building works and source some of the items we still need.
I think I was very brave to agree to Nige going shopping on his own - he is not known for his taste in 'knick knacks'! We have 3 wooden ducks on our fireplace which Nige bought and I still haven't been able to break them whilst dusting!!! Anyway, thanks to modern technology it was agreed he would send me photos to my mobile before he bought anything. Phew - the cold sweats stopped!!
He flew into Antalya to spend a full day there, seeing the place and checking out lighting shops. Antalya is a big city with an Old Town (where he stayed in one of the many small hotels) situated above a large marina. It has lots of history see the Clock Tower and Hadrian's Gate and is much better for shopping (so I am told).
