Leaving Antalya and the Turquoise coast behind we crossed the rugged Taurus mountains, and drove through one of Turkey’s big agricultural areas. Apples were being harvested, along with sugar beets, pumpkin and squash. We spent the night with a Turkish farming family, learning a little about their lifestyle.

The apple harvest from local orchards piled up along the roadside for pick-up.
Wheat fields and dairy farms clustered along the lake shore. Soil here is rich and renewed by frequent flooding from the lake.
