Stopped here at what really is a service station in the desert to stock up on water. There is a mosque here also and they provide free, I assume, water to the populace, or at least passersby. Apparently it is customary for mosques to provide clean water. Good idea.
Also had my first shot of Turkish coffee. Quite bitter but, IMHO, a lot nicer than Western style coffee. I might add a bit of sugar in future to offset the bitterneșs and bring out the flavour.
