Photographer's Note

Derek騽 (Shinoudi in Greek) about 15 km west of Merkez. Situated on two slopes of a valley, parted by a road inbetween (Merkez-Uğurlu road). This village is said to be Turkeys biggest village once, with a population of 10,000. Now almost totally deserted. Be sure to visit the dark laundry building which is not used anymore- of this village.
All these villages (except Kalek騽s coastal part) are situated on the top of the hills and/or considerably away from the sea to escape pirate raids of the past.
Most parts of these villages are more or less deserted, and some parts are ruined. The three most liveliest villages are Kalek騽, Zeytinli, and Tepek騽.
