Christmas dinner.

I hope everyone had a Happy Christmas and is now looking forward to making (and keeping) some New Year’s resolutions, I’ve made some but I’ll only tell you one of them. I’ve resolved to have more fun and adventure in 2011.

Christmas dinner was nice this year, I was invited to Joe and Tricia’s house here in the village along with other friends and we had a lovely meal. That’s Joe and Tricia at this end of the table.

The tone of the party was set by the ‘Party Angels’

In the traditional manner dinner was rounded off by ‘flaming’ the pudding

and then we had played Trivial Pursuit in which both teams knew the answers to each other’s questions but struggled with their own, is it ever thus?

Best wishes to everyone for a  happy, peaceful and healthy 2011.

Art Exhibition and Tourism Festival

The Tourism Festival opened in Kas and a few days ago an art exhibition was opened. Many paintings and other artworks were on display in the streets and shops, here are a few of the pictures I took.

A striking painting by the artist Binnur Aydınyurt from Yeşilköy.

Both sides of this street were hung with paintings and photographs.

This corner was full of metal pots, oil lamps, coffee pots and other decorative items which carried on into the square adjacent.

Here were more metal items, ceramics, clothes and paintings.

This guy made glass pendants and other jewellery. You can see his tools at the end of the bench, he made things while you watch.

These colourful lamp shades are made from little pieces of broken glass, they look beautiful all together on a corner in the town.
