Turunç Diary - March 2015

Welcome to the last diary before the start of the 2015 season!

It's been another wet month and everyone is desperate for Spring to arrive though the lambs think it already has! The frogs are still croaking away at night though no frog spawn as yet in the rivers.


New lambs arrive in Turunç

Whodunnit? murder mystery night at Musti Restaurant


A table top sale was held in Fidan's on 1st March followed by a hugely successful dinner/dance on the 21st in aid of the school. Organised by Amanda Kartal and friends, I believe the dinner/dance alone raised over 1,000 lira.  Well done to all concerned.

Work continues around the village - Musti Restaurant now has the glass and plastic tops required by Muğla,  Meydan finally opened their doors but I believe they will have an "official" opening some time soon.  Work has come to a halt on the new Physkos Villas for now but continues apace at the new hotel with some landscaping now taking place. The outside bar at Cihan's is coming down, watch for further developments.

One of the shop units next to Koren Travel has been let and they are getting ready to open a shoe shop.  Elsewhere shops are getting ready and some are even open!  Rumour is there will be a take-away roast chicken shop though I am unclear at the moment where, if at all, this will be.

Debbie and Fevzi held another of the popular murder mystery nights at Musti Restaurant and the final quiz of the winter season was held Monday 30th.

The rumour this month is that a full market is coming back to Icmeler!

Many thanks again to all the other photographers in the Village who photos I've "borrowed".
