Mersin is about an hour train ride south of Adana (my first train ride too). The house that we went to was right on the beach. It was very relaxing to go to sleep with the sound of the waves on the beach. I did get a pretty bad sunburn on my back. But not from sitting on the beach
The pool they had there was big and beautiful. It had a fountain in the middle that they turn on at night. It's a chlorinated salt water pool. They get their water right from the Sea I think. And it was right beside the Sea.
The train ride was nice. I got to see the countryside and how poor some of the areas are here. The cows they have here seem to be fairly skinny too compared to the ones I'm used to seeing in Canada. There are some horses that are used to pull carts around. I have seen some people that do the carriage tours around town. And yes Papa, I have seen goats, and no I haven't eaten any.
