Bodrum is noisy!! Far from being a sleepy beachside town, it is a vibrant, thumping party. The skinny pebble beaches host tables and chairs for dining with the background of noise. Dogs barking, mosques calling to prayer, roosters crowing, jet skis roaring, pirate party gülets doff doff doffing, beachside night clubs also doff doff doffing, women yelling into cell phones, vendors calling out, motorbikes revving, election campaign vehicles blaring - it is not a peaceful place. But what a lot of fun!!
