May 19th – “The Sun Will Rise Above You” – New songs are born in the Butterfly Valley 

I hiked to the Waterfall in the valley where my song Vessel* was written a year earlier. And strangely enough inspiration hit again. The new song is tentatively titled The Sun Will Rise Above You**. (*Traveler’s Winds of Ksar Ghilane album, **Traveler’s Symphonia album released later in 2015)

The waterfall in butterfly Valley that inspired 2 songs. after climbing to the top from butterfly Valley, too Faralya village I had a chicken shish kabob at a restaurant next to a mosque. the Turkish muazzin call is very beautiful, and the ambiance in the canyon is very nice. Sorry about the chewing sounds. Lol

May 20th – Cold Spring, Mozaik Bahçe, Gym, Visitor

I hiked down to the cold water springs. I was swimming where the ocean meets the fresh water, – the water is relatively comfortable until you swim across a fresh water stream, brrrrrr really cold.  . . .

At Mozaik Bahçe restaurant. The best meal I’ve had in Turkey. So tasty.

I found a cool Turkish gym. . . .They sell all kinds of workout supplements including some you wont find in the States. Take a close look at the white medicine cabinet.
