This is one of the most popular sports in Turkey. Yagli gures

means literally oiled wrestling. The wrestlers wear tight

short leather trousers called "Kispet", made of water

buffalo leather weighing approximately 13 kilograms,

and they cover themselves with olive oil.

Last summer i found my self sitting in grandstand in

village of Gökbel. Gökbel is very beautiful village up in

Taurus mountains near Alanya. It tooks about 50 minutes

to drive there.

Inside 15 last years Turkeys water

and forest ministery has built among

other things:

- 508 dams

- 327 artificial lakes

- 18 water treatment

- 42 National parks

- 223 playing parks

- 4 billion forest plants

- 1856 automatic weather station

Turkey is big country but Turkish

people are working so hard to built

us this beautiful country.

It's was big fair as well with music and celebrations and

it goes on until the morning. Usually lamb roast is a very

popular food. In the entertainments, belly dancing is

accompanied by Turkish traditional musical instruments

'davul' (drum) and 'zurna' (a type of flute) and singings.

I didnt know anything about oil resling, but i noticed that

day started with younger and lighter reslers and ended with

really big and strong ones. I can guarantee that this is really

really nice and interested sport even woman to look!

This event they have every year. Saturday there is huge

music concert with best of Turkish singers, there is many

thousand people lisning the concert. If you want to spent

night there, you need own tent. Sunday is then resling day.

I recommend this everybody to see!

So be careful out there, and look your steps.

Our Lithuanian customer Vitautas got his Tapu

We wish you happy moments in your new home

We have Superman working in our office, his

name is Candemir. Today he did fix tapu for 2

finnish 13 years old girls. Sellers were also from

Finland, but Candemir did have their Power of Attorney.

Buyers were in Alanya with their parents.

It is good idea to put Tapu direct to your children

name, and we are that office who can do that!

Did you know that... You can change your euros to liras

also in bankautomat. Like if you go to Ziraat Bank red

automat, it is very easy to use. Choose first " foreing

exhange" ja put euros in from " Para girisi". Automat will

show you a rate of the day. Then you just accept it and

you will get your liras. Machine is working in English.

Sometimes people thinks " Broker doesn't

know the place" , but this one I know:).

Today we went to see my old rental home

in Kale, owner wants to sell it:). It is lovely

apartment, with the greatest view in

Alanya and that peace.. If you are looking

that, here is your place.. ps. Im envy you !

During the creation of Gourd lamps, the amount

of manual labour is astonishing. Enough reason to

be curious about the details of this extraordinary

process.

The gourd is a fruit comparable to the watermelon,

being green when it hangs from a tree. The inside

consists of white pulp with seeds. After the harvest a

circle is carved from the bottom to remove the pulp.

The gourd is cleaned, both inside and out, after

which it is ready to dry in the sun. The gourd hardens

and gets its more recognizable beige color.

Sometimes our work is like " hamamworkers"

work:) in August it is so hot here

is Alanya. Anyway we are cheking your

homes every month, so dont worry. Everything

will be fine here:) Sari and Olesya

in on the road:) Sometimes we also need

to housekeeper to open to gate:)

The dried-out, hardened gourd is now ready to be

transformed into a beautiful lamp. The design is created

and with a special drill the holes are carefully

created into the most stunning patterns. We design

the patterns ourselves! After the pattern is made visible

with the drill, the gourd is decorated with colorful

beads giving them a beautiful finishing touch.

The outside is treated with a special oil to give them

a shiny, neat look.

In Alanya you can fine these artists from Kale who

are making by hand these gorgeous lamps. Be careful

when you take lamp to plane, those are dry and

thats why they easily go broke.

From the days of the Ottoman Empire through the present,

coffee has played an important role in Turkish lifestyle and

culture.

Brought to Istanbul in 1555 by two Syrian traders, coffee

became known as the "milk of chess players and thinkers".

Perspective husbands would judge a woman's merits based

on the taste of her coffee.

Today, Turkish coffee houses continue their role in society

as a meeting place for both the cultured citizen and the

inquisitive traveler. Istanbul offers many new and delightful

cafe - restaurants where friends and family meet to discuss

topics of the day over a cup of traditional Turkish coffee.

Derived from the Arabica bean, Turkish coffee is a very fine,

powder-like grind. An aromatic spice called cardamom is

sometimes added to the coffee while it is being ground.

One can also boil whole seeds with the coffee and let them

float to the top when served. Turkish coffee has six levels

of sweetness ranging from very sweet to black. Since sugar

is not added to the coffee after it is served, spoons are not

needed. As the coffee begins to heat, it begins to foam. A

rule of the Turkish coffee ceremony dictates that if the foam

is absent from the face of the coffee, the host loses face.

In Alanya here is very active surfing

group. But if you are not ready for surfing

you can always go for 2 hours Supboard

trip. We left from beach front of

Alanya municipality house. First it felt

really unstable, but when i relaxed, it

was really fun. We left at 6 in morning,

so city was quiet, everything was beautiful.

We went to small beach front of old

shipyard, taken some pictures there. I

will go again this summer too:) All age

people can do this, its really fun for

families too:)

Suffers you can see specially in wintertime

in east side of Alanya, there is

nice waves. Welcome to Active Alanya!

Please check the link:

www.alanyasurfteam.com

Turkish coffee is served hot from a special coffee pot called

"cezve". Tradition states that after the guest has consumed

the coffee and the cup is turned upside down on the saucer

and allowed to cool, the hostess then performs a fortune

reading from the coffee grounds remaining in the cup. Rich

in tradition and flavor, Turkish coffee remains a favorite

today.

Prospective brides, as a test of their housekeeping skills, are

still expected to make and serve coffee to the boys' parents

- and have been known to avoid unwanted marriages by

using salt instead of sugar or spilling the coffee all over the

guests! As the Turks say "To drink one cup of coffee

together guarantees forty years of friendship".

Şalgam or Şalgam Suyu (in translation:

"turnip juice") is a popular

beverage from the southern Turkey

cities Adana and Mersin. Although

the Turkish word şalgam

literally means "turnip", şalgam

is made with the juice of red carrot

pickles, salted, spiced and

flavoured with aromatic turnip

(çelem) fermented in barrels with

the addition of ground bulgur.

Hot paprika relish is added just

before drinking.

Şalgam is often served with the

alcoholic drink rakı — not mixed,

but rather in a separate glass.

While şalgam is commonly recommended

as a cure for hangovers,

consuming excess amounts may

cause bloating.

Şalgam is " The real mans"- drink!

As renewable energy sources have become

quite important in terms of countries and

states, the work done on this issue has also

been accelerated.

Turkey has a great potential in terms of

renewable energy sources. Especially, this

potential is the foreground in solar energy.

Turkey annual sunshine duration according

to European and other world states is quite

high.

Finally Turkey realize the potential in the

production of electricity based on solar

energy.

With the new investments made in this area

in recent years Turkey has become one of

the largest markets in Europe.

Alanya municipality is also investing in sun

energy, and has already now an big area

with sun panels installed and running near

Konakli.

Did you

know that..

Paragliding is the latest popular excursion

in Alanya. Jumping from around 700 mt high

from Taurus mountains with proffesional

paragliding pilot. The fly takes around 20

min with amazing Alanya view and landing

Cleopatra beach.

Did you

know that..

National Sovereignty and Children's Day in

Turkey

Solemn ceremonies and children’s festivals

take place throughout Turkey on National

Sovereignty and Children’s Day, held on April

23 each year. Children take seats in the Turkish

Parliament and symbolically govern the

country for one day.

Did you

know that..

This sweet and savory Levantine cheese

pastry is hard to avoid in Turkey; you can

smell the street vendors frying it up from

blocks away. Kunefe is made from a

stretchy, unsalted fresh melting cheese

called hatay found only in this region—

mozzarella would be the closest Western

analogue.

The cheese is coated in sugar syrup-soaked

phyllo shreds called kadayıf (the same ones

used to make some varieties of baklava,

as described above), and fried until crisp.

Its appeal is the contrasting textures of the

crunchy exterior against the soft, melty

interior.

It can be topped with pistachios, kaymak

(clotted cream) or ice cream—or simply

eaten on its own, preferably while still

piping hot. This is my favourite of all

Turkish sweets. You can fine many good

Kunefe cafes from 25 m road in Alanya.

What Do People Do?

Many people in Turkey commemorate the

first gathering of the Grand National Assembly

(the Turkish Parliament), which took

place on April 23, 1920, by attending local

ceremonies or laying wreaths at monuments

of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of

the Turkish Republic. The biggest ceremony

takes place at the Ataturk Mausoleum in

Ankara.

The legendary Orient Express reflects old time luxury

and elegance.

From Paris and London to Istanbul, Orient Express

went almost an entire century. The Orient Express

stories are full of the glamour and the mysteries of

the universe.The legendary train is also in Bond films

than Dracula-stories.

Agatha Christie placed one of the most famous works

into the Orient Express.Christie's "Murder on the Orient

Express" was inspired by an incident that happen

in 1929, actual the murder, which took place in the

train what was stuck in a snow storm near Istanbul.

When she wrote the story Christie went to travel the

route by herself.

Yesterday we did visit with Candemir

new " Ikinci bahar spor alani", so park

to older people:). There is many

equipments to use for little sport,

and also small playground for little

children. So here can go grandparents

and children together:). You can find

this park east side, about 100 m before

Yali taxi, in beach side.

22

The"golden time" was 1930, when it was just about

the only way to travel, and the fastest way also,

thousand miles through the whole Europe.The Orient

Express was a luxury and great elegance. The royals,

nobles and diplomats travelled with the exotic Orient

Express train.

Later, during the cold war to train was full of stories

and rumors of spies etc. on the way to the exciting

world of the East, beyond the Iron Curtain of the enemy

camp.

The original Orient Express will no longer exist. The

working was in the last few decades on several times

in big troubles.At the end of the year 2009 it was decided

to finally close.

Hiking has arrived to Alanya, and will stay here!

Last Saturday we left from Alanya with 36 persons

group. We did drive with bus 1,5 hours

to Akseki area. Bus left us in small village, we

started ours walking from there towards to Taurus

mountain. You can just admire spring time

in Turkey, green fields with hundreds of trees

full of flowers!

We started to clime mountain slope along the

curving path, it was like 4 km long, until we

came to top. It was in 1200 m, the view was incredible.

Huge mountains everywhere and deep

deep valleys between them, ah so beautiful!

Sometimes the path was difficult to detect, but

many thousand years traders and camel caravans

has used it.

After 4 hours hiking we came near Minareli village,

and we stop there in corner of field. There

we enjoyed our lunch, what we all has in our

back bags. Water is very important also, yes its

heavy but within day back bag is coming lighter.

Village was like we have use time machine and

went back hundreds years. Houses was made

of stones and woods.Beautiful balconies and

delightful door, cows in fields, birds were singing

in the trees. Life with out noise and stress!

After the lunch we hiked back to bus and trip

continued to Altınbeşik cave. Before cave bus

stopped and we walked 3 km to the cave.

Totally unbelievable place! Cave is in national

park area and you can go inside the cave

with rubber boat. Guide who came with us

told as facts of the cave. Water was emerald

green, and very cold. End of the cave there

was beautiful waterfall and caves walls was

from limestone.

There is different kind of difficulty levels in

hiking tour, this ours was like middle one.

We hiked about 10 km. It was challenging

because of up hill walk. Hills made our group

to stretch into long queue. But there is also

easy hiking where are used small roads in

flat areas.

i recommend everybody to try these hiking

tours. Alanya and areas near by are full

of historic places and incredible miracles of

nature. Hiking tours are not expensive, this

tour was 60 tl. Every week they are doing two

day tour trip and sometimes also weekend

hiking trips.

Simit are often described as the Turkish bagel

but this is an inaccurate description. Simit are

baked in a stone oven where as bagels are

boiled before being baked. Simit also tend to

be crunchy on the outside providing a delicious

contrast in texture to the soft inside. Municitypality

has trollies in city where you can buy

Simits.

Also Simit are also sold in bakeries all over

town, and some in a variety of flavors. Susam

(sesame), haşhaş (black sesame), and Ay

Çekirdeği (sunflower seed) are some of the

most well known. It is also possible on occasion

to get add-ons to your breakfast bread like

krem peynir (cream cheese) or recel (fruit jam.)

The standard one costs 90 kurus.

Note: Simit last a maximum of 1 day so do not

purchase them in advance and expect them to

stay fresh. You can somewhat rehabilitate your

simit by toasting it but it will never be as good

as the fresh variety.

Did you know that...

There is many animals who are only living in our

area. Many knows our beautiful and huge Caretta

Caretta sea turtles. They are making their eggs

specially in Gazipasa and Alanya area. People are

protecting those eggs and when time comes and

babies are ready to run to sea, volunteers are

carry them to see with baskets.

Also we have great seals in here, Mediterranean

Monk Seal. There is only about 600 them left.

They need clean water to live and make babies.

I have seen one in Fethiye harbour, it was joyful

moment.

So lets try our best to keep our wonderful sea

clean, no more trash there.. Tamam?

Alanya Cultur and Turism 18 th festival just

Did you know... Saz (Turkish Long Neck Lute)

The Saz is the grandfather of the Greek Bouzouki.

It's originated in Central Asia where Turks

lived before their westward migration. Like the

guitar in Spain and the bouzouki in Greece, the

Saz is the most popular stringed instrument in

Turkey.

Although similar in shape to the Greek Bouzouki,

the construction, size and sound of the

Saz is different. You need a baglama saz to be

able to play the microtones (Perde) of Arabic

music.

These instruments have traditional tied frets

that are movable, and 3 courses of strings.

Did you know that...

It is really easy and cheap travel to Antalya by bus

from Alanya, 25 tl, and also there is many busses

and bus companies going true days.

When you go to bus station, otogar, go direct and

buy you seat.

There is also service in bus. At least you are getting

water, lemonade, tea or coffee. Some companies

are also given you snacks.

Busses who are going far away has also tv, movies

and possibility to load your mobile phone.

Have a nice trip!

New "goverment hospital" like people call it,

Devlet, has been open few month now in Oba,

behind Metro. There is first Aid, different polyclinics

and hospital departures.

If you have resident permit, it is quite inexpensive

to use this Devlet hospital. And there is

also English language translator.

How a holiday home in Alanya

brings divorced couple back together

This weekend Finnish newspaper Taulussanomat

published a nice article describing the life in Turkey

for the Leinonen couple.

Leinonen bought a holiday home in Alanya more

than 10 years ago and are now staying here every

winter to get away from cold Finland.

Originally the couple got divorced back in 1994, but

when Mr. Olavi Leinonen later decided to invest in

a holiday home in Alanya it led to a visit from his

then ex-wife Irmeli and the couple got back

together.

The apartment is located in Elite City residence and

was bought via us here at 2Base Estate Agency.

In the article our Finnish sales manager Sari Syrjälä

is also telling about the estate market in Alanya

and what to look out for when investing in Turkish

property.

Here at 2Base we are happy that another positive

story about real estate in Alanya has been

published in European media.

And of course it makes us extra happy and proud

when the source of the story comes directly from

Alanyas best estate agent, 2Base.

Read the full story here - it is in Finnish language so

we recommend using google translate

Ever since the Leinonens have been keeping in

contact with us and we help them whenever it is

needed.

Micro-adventures in Alanya

Big is good but not always best and when it

comes to adventures the smaller ones can often

be just as good as something complicated.

So here is a list of some micro-adventures for

everyone to try out in and around Alanya.

- Walk out the pier to Alanya Lighthouse

- Visit the game area of Alanyum

- Jump on the local bus and see where it takes

you

- Ride the cable car up to the Castle area

- Piknik at the new park area north of Alanya

- Order and eat fresh fish at Yeni Hal and drink

salgam.

- Try Turkish coffee

- Go inside Alanya Museum. We bet you have

passed it several times, but have you actually

entered?

- Buy a freshly cooked corn from one of the

many street vendors.

- Try the bumber cars

- Try out a new beach

- Try Turkish icecream

- Join the locals for lunch, go for "sulu yemek"

- Go out Turkish style at "Harem Bar".

- Rent a bike and ride along the beach. From

Konakli there is

safe passage all the way to Kargicak.

- Visit the local craftsmen area called Sanayi

and finally and most important...

- Use your imagination and take the

opportunities that are handed to you.

Always keep and open and positive mind.

Hopefully you will enjoy Alanya just as much

About colored stickers

and elevators

For those of you who has recently

been in an elevator in Turkey, we are

sure you have noticed the colored

sticker seen inside most elevators.

But what does the different colors mean

and exactly what are they symbolizing?

Yellow Label

Less serious faults that must be

corrected within a period of 60 days.

Blue Label

For defects labelled blue there is a

period of 12 month of corrections.

That is a good question, so we did a little

research on elevator controls for your

safety.

All elevators must be regularly checked

to ensure that they are all safe to use.

The faults detected in these controls are

classified into red, yellow, green and blue

according to their degree and a visible label

is affixed inside the elevator cabinet.

Red Label

If the irregularities identified and labelled

as red are not corrected within 30 days,

you will risk that your elevator will be

sealed off by the municipality.

Green Label

The green label means that no defects

what so ever has been found and that

your elevator is in a perfect condition.

If the elevator has not yet been asesed

and no labels are seen, you should

contact an authorized elevator company

as soon as possible and request your

elevators to have periodic inspection

carried out.

Finally we want to remind you that

using the stairs now and is very

healthy and recommendable no

matter what color the sticker of

the elevator is...

A getaway to Alanya

Did you ever wonder how the perfect

holiday week looks like? If so, then read

more in this blog where we guide you

through 7 lovely days in Alanya

- Day 1

Today you just arrived and even though

the trip to Alanya is not that long, today is

for relaxing.

You go for a short walk to the local

vegetable shop and fill up the fridge

with seasonal fruits.

It is very cheap and you pull out your blender

and make some fresh smoothies.

The rest of they day you spend on the balcony

and at the pool

Do not forget sun lotion and to drink a lot

of water.

In the evening you go to the nearest local

restaurant. It is within walking distance

and the waiters will surely recognize you

from your last visit.

- Day 2

You get up early because the sun is strong

these first couple of days.

You hit the beach as one of the first and

are awarded with a sun bed in first line to

the sea. Until lunch you swim and enjoy

the sun.

Around lunch time it gets too hot and you

move into the shade at the beach bar.

Here you can order a small lunch and a

cold and refreshing Efes.

After lunch you walk back to your

apartment. It is hot but luckily you can

spend the rest of the afternoon in your

cooled apartment.

Turkeyblog.2base.com

You find the time to finish your book and

make a few Skype-calls to friends and family.

After sunset you get into a taxi and drive

to the city center. Here you walk along the

lively and busy Atatürk street.

All the shops are still open and there is a lot

going on.

You end up at the harbor area and enjoy a

perfect dinner at one of the many upscale

restaurants.

- Day 3

You wake up late. After having breakfast on

your balcony you go down to the pool for a

couple of hours.

After that you go shopping, since you will

eat at home tonight.

Luckily supermarkets in Turkey are not that

different to supermarket at home, so you

have no problem getting what you need.

- Day 4

The rental car is delivered to you exactly

at 9 o clock as agreed. You drive up to the

mountains behind Alanya and first stop is

at one of the local restaurants serving

Turkish breakfast. What a breakfast that is,

no lunch is needed now...

After this you drive directing Gazipasa and

take a swim at an unspoiled beach while

the sun sets.

Gazipasa has a cozy bazaar area with local

fish restaurants. You order "levrek" and

drink "salgam" with the locals.

- Day 5

Beaching all day - no chance in hell that you

will return to work looking like a pale fish

like your co-workers.

- Day 6

Your last day in Alanya. Time to go

shopping and get something for friends,

family and of course yourself.

In the bazaar you find an overwhelming

amount of cheap copy products.

At the main street it is more the real deal,

just cheaper than at home.

You end up having to buy an additional

suitcase, and keep your fingers

crossed that this will not mean having

overweight.

Finally the best purchase of the day is

done at the local jewelry shop.

Here you can really save some money,

so your conscience is clean.

The shopping tour sees its end at one of

the many cafes with a cup of coffee and a

piece of cake.

You have not had time to think about

dinner, so your order some kebab from

the local restaurant and they deliver to

your door step.

Before going to bed it is time to pack and

go for at last swim in the pool.

- Day 7

Bye bye Alanya, or "güle güle" as your

Turkish friends are saying.

Despite all the shopping you have only

minimal overweight and the staff at the

check-in counter turns the blind eye to it.

A week has passed and you could easily

have spend seven more days.

Luckily you know that you will soon be

back again...

Alanya is the city of playgrounds

Families with children love Alanya.

The climate here is perfect for both

smaller and bigger children and the list

of activities for children is long and

exiting.

For older children we have go-carting,

paintball, cinema, tree climbing

(parkour), ATV excursions and much

more.

Younger children will surely enjoy all the

playgrounds in and around Alanya.

Last couple of years the municipality has

put a lot of work into building small parks

with playgrounds all around Alanya.

As a foreigner you should not be afraid

to take advantage of this, even if you

might be the only foreigner there.

Trust us when we say, that the local

parents and kids will be more than

happy to see a foreign face on their

playground.

Even playgrounds might not meet

European safety rules 100% it is very

close and generally speaking the

equipment and facilities are safe and

extremely well looked after.

So next time you visit Alanya with a

kid try out the local playground

- we are sure you will like it.
