Popular Çalış Beach Attraction Reopens
Regular readers may recall the museum in the Yörük tents at the end of Çalış beach, which was burnt down in a fire last April.
The cause of the fire was arson and the perpetrators are in now in jail.
But the museum has recently reopened on the same site, and displaying some 7,000 items used in the traditional Yörük nomadic lifestyle.
The owner of the museum had artefacts in storage awaiting display and these, together with many other items donated by well wishers, have enabled the museum to be recreated so quickly.
Counterfeit Goods Seized and Retailers to be Sued
Holidaymakers in Hisarönü got a free show this week as a team of 40 Jandarma, led by the local Commandant, simultaneously raided 13 shops selling designer labelled clothes and bags.
The exercise also involved lawyers for the companies involved, and shops from which sample items were removed are now to be sued through the courts.
