camping at an altitude of 1550 meters! one of the highlight of the tour so far. and moreover i enjoyed the sound of nature during the nigth. far away from the barking of dogs and the croaking of the muezzin.
generally i try to use the small roads in turkey as often as possible. from aksaray on i cycled to Nevsehir-?rg?p (unfortunately a lot of traffic) and then to Develi. afterwards i reached the highest point of the tour so far, a pass on 1990 meters. a great and remote route, with best drinking water along the way. this is a very good facility i whole turkey. to go on in direction of east i first had to travel north and then straight south to G?ksun, where i cycled also through forest!
now i am happy to rest for the first time in turkey. yesterday i felt very bad and tired in the morning. i think the reason was maybe a sunstroke with fever and so on. therefore i took some vitaminpills, had a 2-hours rest at a gasoline station and then i struggled hard to get to Elbistan.
