Later in the afternoon we walked to see Filiz at Ayvalik Music Academy that she ran. Mina found the grand piano fascinating and with permission from Filiz she sat at the bench and bang-bang-bang… She loves music in general, for some reason she has a particular inclination towards classical music. Maybe she will be a musician like Ruthie, Jan’s mother.
After the brief piano encounter, we went to the Sea Urchin, a new restaurant. It is right on the water, clean, and I enjoyed it very much. The food was good, particularly good that day as they were filming a visit by a food critic. It is one of the best restaurants in Ayvalik. Mina ate a little bit of this and that, but later enjoyed the grilled chicken they made for her. Here are some photographs from these experiences.
