The railway station of Camlik had been built in 1856 by the Britains. It's on the way from Izmir to Aydin. Not far away from the station there was a tunnel that broke down.

You´ve to keep this collection :) . I was near Izmir and i never heard about the Railway Museum :(. It´s a shame i want to repeat it the experience and go back to Turkey :). Great country and people, the food it´s really good. The best rice i had, it was in TopKapi´s restaurant.

When you search in Google Earth for Ipsala, you'll find a small village very close to the Greek border. North and south-west of Ipsala you can see a big green area. These green fields are all rice plantations. And here you'll get a very tasty and sticky rice. If you go to Turkey this summer, just let me know. Then I'll try to organize some of this rice for you.

In case you are in Munich, my wife would love to prepare some nice dinner with rice from Ipsala :)
