this is a fun trip; but be alert:
On these routes you will come through many villages were dogs are running loose and they WILL chase you (or your bike). Either be very fast or carry stones to throw. And despite their barking, these dogs (try to) bite!
Also: the Turkish hospitality was unmatched. Be prepared to:
1. Drink a lot of tea
2. Be rude (= wave friendly but don't stop) and avoid invitations, otherwise you will never make progress/mileage.
3. Avoid the red chillies ;)
