Bodrum by Walter Bourchier Devereux

engraving of Bodrum by Walter Bourchier Devereux

Those who have been to Bodrum in the 21st century will have a hard time believing their eyes, but this is what Bodrum looked like some 200 years ago. A fortress, a frigate or galeon or two, empty spaces, few faces.

Last time I was there, a policeman was standing at an intersection where vehicles were not allowed, trying to orchestrate pedestrians so that they would not walk on each other around 02:00 AM.

A beautiful engraving by Walter Bourchier Devereux.
