Peace and war


It was very hot on Sunday and we went swimming at Samandag, a rustic resort on the Mediterranean. The local restaurant showed us an array of fish caught that morning and we ordered our selection for a late lunch. Fresh fish, salad with the most delicious dressing, huge juicy tomatoes, the sun glittering on the sea, excellent company: all was perfect until...we heard five bombs from over the Syrian border a few miles away.
Antakya is full of mercenaries: men with long beards and guns who disappear into Syria for a few skirmishes and then return. The locals are annoyed and worried.
