Today, the company held a picnic at Aslankoy (near Gozne) in the mountains north of Mersin. We were hoping for a picnic in the snow but the only snow we saw consisted of small patches on the side of the road.
Serkan and Bulent (Nesibe’s husband) tend the onions, sausages and lamb chops. The lamb chops in Turkey are flattened with a mallet, as opposed to those in Australia which generally are not.

I’m featuring a few photos of Serkan as he will leave work in a few weeks to do his military service. Serkan has worked for IES for many years (6 or 7 I believe) and has been a great friend and colleague.
