I always thought there was a need for a website that would convey all the current news, and local information in English to expats, as well as tourists visiting Kalkan, and I think you do it very well.

Chris MorganIt is with great sadness that we report the death of former Kalkan resident Chris Morgan who passed away peacefully on 2nd September at a hospice in Chester after an eighteen month battle with liver cancer.  She was 68 years old.

Chris leaves behind a beloved husband Andrew, two sons Andrew and Danny, grandchildren Hannah and Harry, and a doting daughter in law Julie.  They told us, “Chris will never be forgotten and will be forever in our hearts”.

Chris always regarded her time in Kalkan fondly, enjoying card games with friends, line dancing, the sunshine and socialising with family and friends.

Liberation Day in Kastellorizo (Meis) - 13th September PDF Print E-mail

Meis harbour

If you are in Kalkan around the middle of next month and are looking for an interesting day out you might like to consider a day trip to the nearby Greek island of Meis (Kastellorizo), where on Wednesday 13th September 2017 they celebrate Liberation Day

Normally the island is a sleepy backwater where nothing much happens but on this day they hold a ceremony at the harbour that is attended by the great and the good - including VIPs from the Greek mainland.  Even on such an auspicious day it won't be over crowded but there should certainly be a buzz about the place.

To give you some background about what Liberation Day is all about we thought we would give you a brief history of the island.  It’s rather complex so we have made it simple.

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.
