We spend a great day in Mersin, walking along the boulevard from which we can see the biggest mosque of the country. Well, every good citizen will tell you that the biggest mosque in their city is also the biggest temple in the country. That’s what I heard in Istanbul and Diyarbakir. That said, the mosque here in Mersin is indeed impressive with its glorious high minarets and enormous dome.
After our stroll we visit a Mall, and despite my intuitive aversion against the concept that threatens to “Americanize” the world, I must say that I like the architecture – and enjoy the icecream at Mado’s.
At night, I beam some inglourious basterds on the wall. It was a great weekend – tomorrow I’ll go back to work.
