Türkçe

29-kas-2009 -- Kazdağlarının eteklerini aşarak Edremit'e inen harika bir dağ yolundan geçerek Ayvalık'a vardık. Kısa bir şehir gezintisinin ardından Bergama'ya devam edip, yolda Aşağıkırıklar – Yenikent tabelası istikametine döndük ve bir ağacın altına arabamızı parkettik.

Sabah bir tarla yoluna girdik. Yol bir noktada geçilmez hale gelince bol çamurlu bir yürüyüşe başladık. Uçsuz bucaksız pamuk tarlalarının ortasından uzun bir yürüyüşle noktaya ulaştık. Aynı rotayla geriye dönerek hızla 39N 28E kesişimine hareket ettik.

29-Nov-2009 -- The story started at 41N 32E.

Edremit route covered an area over the skirts of the Kaz mountains, reknown with the richest oxygen concentration in the air. We dropped by Ayvalık, a heavily historic sea-side town with lovely architecture in good state of preservation. Reaching near 39N 27E, we parked under a tree and fell into a well deserved sleep.

The next morning, Dikili plain means vast cotton fields all the way over the horizon. That explains why the region is a frontier in the world's textile industry. Did the CP after a rather long walk and took the same route back to the highway onto 39N 28E.

Continued at 39N 28E.
