Hi, Atil – I am back after safe flights to Sabiha and then to Kharkov, only still somewhat sleepy ))). Thank you for an attempt to conquer Erciyes and for guiding me in Ala-Dag. I appreciate that you guided me personally although this was clearly not very beneficial. I enjoyed the climbing andthe trekking very much. I had under-estimated the charm of Ala-Dag. This is indeed a very nice and beautiful mountain range (the French have perfect taste when it comes to the mountains))). I will be thinking about the next trek ). I have told to Olga and Denis about Ala-Dag. I have also tried to explain them all we had discussed about Taxim and today’s Turkey. I am arranging my photos and will be sending them to you on weekend. Best wishes to you, your family and your staff..
