So once a week we have a day off. Yay! It helps keep us sane around here since we work so hard and for such long hours the other 6 days a week. For the second day off, I went to the beach (Samandag Deniz).
We actually joked that we were going to swim over to Syria because it is so close to the border. Maybe next time.
I got a horrible burn because I (very intelligently) did not wear sunscreen. But, the Med was soooo warm and wonderful that it was totally worth it.
It cured my cabin fever and I was totally ready to get back to work analyzing pottery. BTW–they have excavated a couple of whole vessels in the last couple of days and they are BEAUTIFUL. I feel so honored that I get to register them!
