Bodrum - Then and Now

Submitted by Bodrum Bulletin reader Ursula Haselden

Bodrum, after twenty-six years, has expanded into a busy, sprawling, dazzling white resort clustered around the big blue eye of Bodrum bay. Only when leaving via the main road along the hills behind, did I see below the iconic Crusader Castle of the Knights, which once divided the town between its largely Cretan and Turkish populations. It was a landmark we had found far from easy to spot through wavering binoculars on our lively sail from Kos, after crossing the Aegean in early spring by small boat all those years ago. That night the castle had advanced in floodlight and I was thrilled to have reached the Levant.
