2014 Saga Pearl II

Trabzon 13th. October 2014. Why the bunting?

It was a grey, overcast day with the threat of rain so we took the shuttle bus into Town rather than walk. Rather an unspiring place (in my opinion) with the pavements strewn with boxes of goods being unloaded for the shops. The Town was bedecked with bunting and flags, we never found out why, and there was a rather nice statue of Kemal Ataturk (see below). What with the boxes obstructing the pavements and the amount of people walking around talking into their mobile phones and, seemingly, not seeing us we soon got fed up with it and walked back to the Ship.
