What do you think of with Paul’s home town of Tarsus? actually this place is famous for grapes as you can see on the logo outside the municipality buildings.

It seems almost every other house in Tarsus has a frame for vines.

Even on top of this really tiny little office.   Every spare bit of roof space can be used.

Well, I looked in various small corner stores and even a big western style supermarket and I couldn’t find anyone with locally made stuff.  So this bottle I got which is actually made in the eastern city of Izimir.
