Journal Entry:
Took a dolmus back to Fethiye, asked for the next bus to Olimpus and was on my way in 10 minutes. Unfortunately that bus was via Antalya, which is twice as far from Fethiye as Olimpos. So my two hour bus ride became six, and I didn't even get to see the coast. Got droped off at the main road down to Çirali (Olimpos), unfortunately a 11km hike. Fortunately I was able to pay a guy a million lira for a ride down. The campground I'm staying at is very cool, it looks like a cross between an artists colony and a refuge camp. I have a treehouse next to a river all to myself (and I'm told the camp cats come in to sleep with you at no extra charge.
