On the road to Adana I ran into these two guys who had decided to cycle from Mersin to Adana. When I pulled into the gas station they asked if I had seen a black bag . . . to which I replied, "yeah, about four kilometers back". So, one of the guys jumped on his bike and headed back to find the bag. Meanwhile, the other guy started fixing a flat tire. I kicked back and drank a cola. Across the road from the gas station, up on a high escarpment sat the Ceyhan Castle (pictured below).
When I arrived in Adana, I easily found my locale on the city map when I crossed the 4C AD Roman Stone Bridge, which is still one of the busiest bridges in the city.
I had to spend a couple nights in Adana because my computer was being serviced (don't ask!), the archeological museum was closed for the summer (don't ask!), and I found some wonderfully tart cherries, that, weren't cherries (but a truly beautiful tasting fruit), and I ate them ALL . . . (don't ask!!).
