Our conference venue was a tourist hotel on the Med - it was November, so very much out-of-season, although as I have said the climate was perfect for me. It was pretty swanky (Ed: swanky, eh?) as you can see.
The pool area
There was only a handful of tourists around - mostly Russians as I recall. We could avail of the amenities of the hotel, although I think the pool was closed. No matter - the beach was nearby:
Not a tourist in sight
The backdrop of The Med and mountains was just perfect - and not a sinner about. November, southern Turkey...perfect. Although I did get food poisoning on the last day there and spent a pretty awful 24 hours in bed before catching my flight home, so, nearly perfect, OK?
