August 09, 2012. Here on the other side of the Mediterranean things seem suddenly very easy.
The overnight bus from Mersin to Izmir left on time and with more than generous seats for everyone on board. Even I can understand the customs procedures in Kusadasi port. And after enjoying all the culinary pleasures Samos has to offer (proper coffee, fresh yoghurt with honey and fruits, feta cheese with olives, tomatoes and peppers and the local dessert wine, duh) I’m getting ready for two more ferries to Italy and two more trains to Germany. Easy.
