Selçuk Strolls

It was fun to stroll around the small town of Selçük, the usual base for visiting the antiquities of the area.   We were off season so it wasn’t super touristy and felt much more like a small Turkish town.

We spent several wonderful hours with Fig, the leopard.  On this morning we discovered her with her recent kill which she had already deposited safely in the crook of a tree.
