    Belgian Surprise

    Just before they cycled past Hisarköy, we crossed 2 loaded cyclists, one on a recumbent.  They followed us to Güneşköy before continuing to Cappadocia, Iran, Mongolia...

    Others helped plant two more elder trees.

    Roof done!

    A good roof, so dry in the rain which will be easily harvested.  The nearest viaduct, V9, is nearly complete too. Our V10 will start soon.

    8000m2 ploughed and ready for planting.
