This hotel is located right at the Zigana Pass, which is one of only about four ways of crossing the Kara Deniz mountain range into the interior of the Anatolian Plateau.  This overland route has been in use for literally thousands of years.


There were not one, but two, weddings being celebrated simultaneously on one Saturday in our market town of Tonya.


Wedding celebrants in Tonya dance the horon.



While the younger folks do the horon, the older ones watch.



A hazelnut tree in bloom.   The area along the eastern Black Sea coast is the largest hazelnut producing area in the world.



The villagers have been investing in passive solar devices for heating water.  The building on the left is a typical “serander” where grain is stored.
