Photographer's Note

This woman is 80 years old. She has a perfect memory. We were intended for buying a house from her village. While we were walking on the narrow roads of the village we met this woman. As a joke, we asked her about the prices.

It was unbelievable, she told us all of the houses' prices, who owned, which one sold and how much. She even pointed out that there is a heavy speculative purchases around.

The joke turned out to a serious conversation and we all get too astonished.

Location : Old Datca/Mugla/Turkey

Some information about the area :
The Carians settled in south western part of Anatolia, between the Menderes River and K鰕cegiz Lake and named this area as Caria. The Dat鏰 Peninsula was also located within these borders, and today it's in the Aegean region of Turkey. After the Turkish Republic (1923) was founded the Peninsula regained its old name of "Dat鏰". Today Dat鏰 is a district of the province Mugla. Some of the important sights to visit in Dat鏰 are: The mosque in Hizirsah village was inherited from the Seljuks period. It has been restored and is well worth seeing. Eski Dat鏰 (Old Dat鏰, 4 km) with beautiful old stone houses, holiday and permanent residences of many Europeans and Turks, is showing typical architecture of the area. Cnidus was famous for its naked statue of Aphrodite. Kizlan and its windmills, which have become a symbol for Dat鏰, is worth visiting. There are the remains of some ceramic manufactures between Old Dat鏰 and Hizirsah village thought to have been worked during the 4th century BC.
