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.

told was a Genoese castle.

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.
