Sandy Pfunder's Photo Album (1965-67) - 3
(Bolaman, Summer 1965)

Half way through our training at Yalincak and METU (1965), the Turkey 9 group dispersed, and everybody spent a week in a Turkish village.  Dennis and Marcie Pearson, Bill Mercer and I traveled together.  We stayed several days in Bolaman, on the Black Sea Coast East of Fatsa in the Province of Samsun.

The village mayor and another man from Bolaman.  We hiked up into the hills behind Bolaman with them one afternoon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After we had stayed in Bolaman for two days, we rode horses up into the mountains, and we visited the homes of two men who had large hazlenut orchards.  They are on the right and left in this picture.  The man in the center of the picture lived down in Bolaman and accompanied us on our trip up into the mountains.
