Journal Entry:
Got up early intending to hike up to the ruins of a city up on a ridge. Realized during breakfast that I needed to be back in Istanbul tomorrow morning (I was thinking it was the day after). While packing the weather started to look threatening so I decided against the 6 hour hike. Wandered through the ruins to the beach again. Spent the afternoon lounging on the beach.

Laura, Jean, and Rachael were also leaving so we talked one of the camp workers into giving us a ride up to the main road (saving us the 11km hike uphill). Caught a passing bus to Antalya. Had dinner with the girls at the bus station then I caught the night bus to Istanbul. There's a pretty good chance I could run into them in Cappadocia next weekend.
