Here we are, sat watching Slovenia against USA, hoping for a draw, just to make life easier for England in the World Cup. We love Turkey and all things Turkish (and I don't like football) but the World Cup is the World Cup and we have a joint love of the English and Turkish football teams. Unfortunately, Turkey are not in South Africa to entertain us, so England are our only hope. Dare I say it, but it's 2-2 as I write. Please let it stay like this - and please let England win against Algeria later on. Anyone reading this from elsewhere in the world, just bear with me for today - it's a World Cup thing.
Deep Blue Bar football
And here's a photo of the big screen in Deep Blue Bar - Steven Gerrard scoring for England in their first game against the USA. This group was all supposed to be so easy for England. Obviously, the other teams have different ideas. Waiting for 9:30pm (Turkish time) and we'll have a better idea of how this group is going to pan out as we watch the England game.
Anyway, enough football. It's been another scorcher today in Fethiye. We've not hit the dizzy heights of the 40s like we did yesterday, just the mid-30s, but the early evening sun is much hotter tonight. We were rescued by the haze yesterday evening but no such luck tonight. We managed a walk to the Friday market in Fethiye this afternoon for some much needed essentials (and some cherries and apricots - little breakfast and nibbly treats, not essentials). I mentioned on our fanpage on Facebook before that the only thing to do in this weather is eat frozen watermelon. Ohhh, the bliss of arriving home from the market after a long trudge in the sun and delving into the freezer for Barry's frozen watermelon concoction. It was promptly devoured on the balcony while the shopping was left to wait where it was dropped!
Game on! Slovenia/USA finished 2-2. Waiting, waiting for the England Algeria game now. (Sorry!)
