Victory Day (Zafer Bayram) procession - Wednesday 30th August PDF Print E-mail

Zafer Bayram (Victory Day) in Kalkan

On 17th August KTLN told you of some upcoming public holidays in Turkey.  One of them falls tomorrow, Wednesday 30th August when the whole of Turkey celebrates Zafer Bayram (Victory Day).  This is the date in 1922 when the Turks defeated the Greeks in Anatolia. 

There will be a torchlight procession in Kalkan on Victory Day starting at 21.00 which appears to have been organised by the local CHP party.  There is also one in Kaş starting at 20.00.

The Kalkan procession goes from the bus station through the old town and ends down at the harbour.  It's usually a fun atmosphere (unless you're Greek probably).

For information we republish below a reminder of the dates on which banks and government offices will be closed over the coming week or so.

Barry NorthropIt is with immense sadness that we report the death of a regular visitor to Kalkan, Barry Northrop.

Barry was diagnosed with prostate cancer back in 2016 and had been receiving treatment for his condition.  Sadly his brave battle ended last week when he passed away, peacefully in the presence of his family.  He was 72 years old.

Barry and his wife Sue have been Kalkan fans for many years and own a property here.  They recently celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary back in the UK.

This takes you to the Day in the Life home page, where you can access over 90 profiles, of mostly local people.  The first one you come to is our latest subject.

Why not browse through our back catalogue.  There are so many interesting characters in there.  Please bear in mind that the articles reflect a Day in the Life at the time they were originally published.  We don't update the old articles but we do keep them online as a matter of record to reflect what people were doing at the time of publication.

KTLN Behind the Scenes: Trio restaurant PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 22 August 2017

Trio restaurantIn May 2010 KTLN took a look behind the scenes at Aubergine restaurant.  We were allowed to spend some time in their kitchen during a busy evening in the main tourist season.  It was a great insight into how hard people work to give us the quality of food that we have come to expect, and for which Kalkan has a well earned reputation.  Lots of you read our article.  Click here to see the article

We thought it might be interesting to do a few more “Behind the Scenes” articles, so if you run a restaurant in our area and you would like to invite us in to your kitchen to see how you do things please get in touch and we can discuss the idea.  Contact KTLN

We had such a conversation with the guys at Trio restaurant and here is our behind the scenes report from this long established harbour-side eatery.

Another collision at D400 traffic lights in Kalkan. Time for change? PDF Print E-mail

Road traffic incident - D400

There was an accident at the D400 traffic lights junction yesterday, close to the petrol station.

KTLN does not report every road traffic accident that happens in Kalkan, but this particular junction has more than its fair share.  In fact it was only a few weeks ago that workmen came to repair the road signs that were damaged by the last accident.  Now they have it all to do again.

The latest incident occurred at around 18.00 on Sunday 20th August when two Renault Symbol cars collided with each other.

Eye witnesses reported that the silver coloured car was coming down the D400 towards the junction travelling in the direction of Kaş and the white car was leaving town and crossing the D400.

Friends of Kalkan on Facebook - onwards and upwards PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 20 August 2017

Friends of KalkanYesterday we spotted that the Facebook page Friends of Kalkan was at 3,995 members and we figured they would be breaking the 4,000 mark today.  And so they have. 

For Kalkan this is now the go to place for friendly chat, recommendations and photos.  If you use Facebook we suggest taking a look.

It takes time and effort to keep such a forum on the straight and narrow and they do it very well.  Congratulations to Alan for setting up the Friends of Kalkan page and to the admin team for making it the success it is.  Nice one!
