As we drew away from the port en route for Tasucu in Turkey, we settled down in the van and opened all the doors. Both we and our passengers are enjoying a light refereshing breeze, that will help couriers J and M concentrate on completing the Turkish Annexe 2 certificates. We’re due to meet an English-speaking friend of the Turkish vet when we land, who’ll see us through the port procedures.

As we drew away from the port we looked back at the island. In the middle is Five Finger Mountain in whose folds KAR's rescue centre nestles. Maybe you can even spot it?

Margaret and Kim waved us off, saying they could still see us, even from this great distance. The KAR office and clinic is right in the middle of the photo.
