I bought two or three huge peaches from this store in Goreme. The owner was young and very friendly. His wife and their daughter were inside and the girl was showing off her dress. In the picture on the boat, the couple at left were a woman from California, who had been laid off her teaching job in California and had no debts, so she stored her belongings and planned out a two year trip around the world with teaching jobs here and there along the way, all of them arranged, and she was only a month or so into her journey; he ran a coffee shop in a bathhouse museum, and he knew the captain. He always had a fishing line out and once he offered me one of the cooked fish he'd caught that day. Sometimes we talked a lot, other times we couldn't talk at all.
