Lycian Way Day 7 - Bus to Kalkan from Patara, "Zero Day" - March 15, 2013

For some reason, whenever I woke up in the morning, I became hell-bent on pushing on despite whatever I was swearing about the day before. I was back to insisting we through-hike, and in the correct order! So even though we were in Patara, and there were sections of trail right there, I didn't want to skip the Xanthos aqueduct hike, which goes from the Xanthos ruins to Kalkan.  From Kalkan you hike around a peninsula through Patara (where we spent the night) and back to Kalkan. So yes, instead of doing the hiking backwards, we decided to dolmus-it over to Kalkan, and do the next sections as day hikes, with Kalkan as our base.

At any rate, we went to Kalkan and found a nice pension (Gul) with a great view, and took the day off. We needed the break anyway, and it was a nice town to hang out in.
