TASTE OF HOME

Turkish food is very tasty–a true Mediterraean diet filled with healthy veggies like eggplant.  But from time to time, we crave good ole American chow.

Leaving Marmaris yesterday, Kent dropped me at the quay and circled the harbor in Destiny while I went ashore to “top up” our internet card.  As it happens, right across the street from Turkcell is BURGER KING.  Yes, Marmaris has a Burger King too, just like Bodrum, but this one doesn’t have a terrace over looking harbor.

Burger King is BIG in Turkey--literally and figuratively

On the way out of the harbor we chowed down on Whoppers with cheese!

What about me?

Earlier in the day at we had scored big finding both Heinz baked beans AND Pepperidge Farms Nantucket cookies.

After cookies for dessert we realized that our entire day had been a binge of foods we used to eat–and don’t really miss that much.  No wonder people in the Med live longer.
