That Which You Have Danced Can Never Be Taken Away.

Lycian Way, Turkey. Bogazcik to Ucagiz. I do my best to entertain Mrs Ali in reward for our delicious meals by striking a ‘strong man’ pose just before we set off. Laughing at my ridiculousness she gestures to Pam obviously saying the equivalent of ‘he is so strong now, yet last night he needed a…

I have travelled far and witnessed marvels many during my twelve plus…
