the day relaxing on the dock with Michal Beckham. Michal is an American
singer brought from Philadelphia to play with the band. That came out
wrong. Sing with the band is what I meant. She's an awesome Jazz singer.
always mention how Turkbuku is full of dogs, but it's also full of cats
as well. And oddly enough, the dogs and cats don't fight in this town.
And here's Yahya taking home a souvenir.
night all the bar staff was given ID badges to wear. Made it a lot easier
for me! Here's Aydin posing. Looks like he has a lot of experience with
these kinds of pictures....
That night I bumped into Deniz and Mahve. These are two of the regulars
that hang out at the bar (check out the Dog Bay
and Turkey '01 stories for more info).
Deniz, and Deniz' mom hanging out on the dock.
smokin' a stogey!
they left for Havana, and later my father and I headed over. Before
we left I saw Idil walk by. She waved hello, but didn't stop to talk.
the nice thing about having your own bar is that you can reserve the
best seat in the house for yourself every night!
Bumped into Deniz and Mahve at Havana, but they wouldn't really talk
to us because they were with a big group of friends. I can understand
not wanting to talk to my dad, but they didn't even want to talk to
Havana is a huge outdoor nightclub (actually, pretty much everything
in Bodrum is outdoors. It never rains down here, so very few places
bother with the optional roof). During the day it's a beach club, and
very, very popular. At 2 pm, they lock the gates and no one else can
get in to tan. It also has a dock (most places down here do), and something
like 4 bars. The place is always packed, and a lot of fun. They play
a nice mix of Salsa, Disco, Hip Hop and Techno. Enough so that even
an old fud like me can enjoy themselves.
My dad left and I hung around with Kerem and his friends for a bit,
then we hopped into his boat and headed home.
It was the first time I ever took a boat home from a nightclub!
and Kerem, Kerem with his friend, and two of the girls we were hanging
out with. Basically, I've already pretty much forgotten everyone's name.
So if you don't see a name, I can't remember it!
Kerem is my stepbrother, nice guy, but usually a little too party oriented
for me. But he's young yet, he'll get over it. One day he'll have to
get a job!
know, let's see how many drunk people we can stick in a boat!
