Muğla - Datça Peninsula

Datça is accepted as diversion point of Aegean Sea And Mediterranean. The famous geographer Strabon said, "God would send his beloved servant to Datça to live longer". According to a story a ship, sailing through Datça, throws its crew who has plague off to the Datça ground. But those people who were left to suffer and die at here recovered. It said that there are more than 50 bays on the Datça peninsula but not all o them reachable by road. Sea is like an aquarium on some places. There is an ancient city at the end of the peninsula called Knidos. Datça is famous for three things: honey, almond and fish (3 B in Turkish: bal, badem, balık. Sounds more harmonical :)). We see many beehives especially on the road to Knidos. A famous poet Can Yücel lived a part of his life here with his wife Güler Yücel. When he has buried on this land his grandchild asks "Did you plant my grandfather". I want to write a turkish poem from Can Yücel for who speaks turkish:

Beni kuzum Datça'ya gömün
Geçin Ankara'yı İstanbul'u!
Oralar ağzına kadar dolu
Alabildiğine de pahalı,
Örneğin Zincirlikuyu'da
Bir mezar 750 milyona
Burası nispeten ucuzluk
Ortada kalma tehlikesi de yok
Hayır dua da istemez,
Dediğim gibi beni Datça'ya gömün
Şu deniz gören mezarlığın orda,
Gömü sanıp deşerlerse karışmam ama!
