Up in the hills outside of Selcuk is this cute village, Sirince. It was relatively busy with tourists.The locals sell their local handicrafts and produce in little stalls. There are great restaurants that has great food. We took the mini bus from Selcuk after we checked into our dumpy pension or pansiyon. We had a great lunch at one of the local places, it was one of the best meals we've had in Turkey. I love the gozleme, the Turkish crepes. The village is all uphill and it was a really pleasant walk all over, peeking into back yards, toilets, front yards, gardens and whatever else we can poke our nose into. We chased Anatolian women around just to snap their pictures. The whole village and village life was on display. Turkey has a great bus system, the bigger buses connects the big cities. One does not need to go to the Otogar (bus station), usually your hotel people can buy the tickets for you for a small fee. The mini buses connects the smaller places and it is very cheap, for 2.50TL for a short ride.
