Rhino Cam #07 – Istanbul to Samsun

What a week. 13,000 metres of climbing and who knows how many litres of water drunk. The latest update takes us all the way along the Black Sea coast from Istanbul to Turkey. It has been a week of serious ups and downs both in terms of terrain and emotion, but highlights include camping on the beach, camping under motorways, 80km climbs, kebabs, the call to prayer and most of all the friendliness and hospitality of the Turkish people.
