I have breakfast together with the hotel-keeper.
Then I drive towards his home village, Tekkale. On my list is Dörtkilise, another church in ruins. There should be another one up in the mountains but I don't have a very exact description of the route and it is not marked.
Past Tortum waterfall and Tortum lake to Erzurum. Not much water in the waterfall this time of year. Öshkvank church also on the route. In Erzurum I visit the first mosque here and eat in a 'traditional Turkish restaurant'. The one offered during the conference in Istanbul was kind of bullshit.
