Ryan spent a few days in Marmaris, Turkey earlier this month. He worked Shore Patrol the entire time so he wasn't able to take advantage of the cultural tours...or the drunken debauchery. Instead he worked rotating shifts with other guys from the squadron policing the crazy 18-year-old sailors who were able to legally drink in Turkey. Fun times!
There he is! And there's the ship!
The one street full of bars or whatever. This is a summer resort town so a bunch of stuff was closed at this time of year.
Fancy, right? I don't know how they choose their port cities. This one didn't really seem large enough to accommodate everyone, but I'm sure they were all just happy to get off the ship.
The USS ENTERPRISE leaving Marmaris. Beautiful!
And, because he knows me so well, Ryan took a picture of his morning coffee (sludge) and sent it to me.
