Vacation in Alanya, Turkey: Kleopatra Beach, bazaar, prices (+Quantum Calibrations)

I enjoy periodically scouting the globe — virtually or in person, as the time and my fancy permit — to find out if various geo locations might be interesting and/or desirable for a global relocation, or simply just for a relaxing vacation. I’ve mentioned previously in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17: Quality of Life Worldwide: Lada Ray Geo Calibrations that many people at this time of the EARTH SHIFT will be considering relocating to another city, country or continent. Therefore, once in a while, if a geo location intrigues me in some way, I’ll be posting an article about it here, on FT.

In no way such posts should be considered a promo or endorsement. Everyone must make their own decisions on relocation.

For those who are in need of a personalized advice, including Quantum and Geo Calibrations, coupled with my usual predictions, forecasts and global experience, I am presently considering re-introducing Lada Ray Private Consultations. I’ll have a separate announcement soon.  

Today we talk Alanya, Turkey. Summer vacation time is approaching, and I thought some might be interested in this famous Turkish resort area. This isn’t a promo or recommendation by any means. This is an exploration…

I like to explore off the beaten path. Some rare gems can be found by stepping off the paved road — figuratively speaking, of course.

This is meant to be a positive and relaxing post, so I won’t go much into politics here. I’ll just mention that after a 1.5 year period of strained Russia-Turkey relations, due to Turkey shooting down Russian Su-24 jet, there is a huge improvement. Turkish Stream is back on the map, and other joint infrastructure mega projects are a go. Turkish produce and construction workers are slowly allowed back into the Russian market, and Turkey is gradually distancing itself from the West and getting into a more balanced relationship with Russia. Not all is champagne and roses, but the delicate and complex EARTH SHIFTING geopolitical game being played by Putin is bearing some very nice Turkish fruit.

Alanya and other resort areas of Turkey suffered a devastating blow when tourism from Russia suddenly dried up over two years ago, following the Su-24 downing incident and Russia’s incursion in Syria. But Putin played a virtuoso game of chess, resulting in major shifts in Turkish / Erdogan’s policies towards the West and ISIS vs. Russia. Read about all that in ESR5, ESR7 and ESR13.

Since then, the hotels and beaches are slowly filling in again. The touristy Alanya is international, where you can hear various languages, such as French, English, Italian, German, and of course, Russian. In fact, there are hotels and resorts in Turkey built specifically to cater to the preferences of the Russian tourists: usually all-inclusive packages.

What I like about Alanya:

1. You’ll see Kleopatra Beach footage below – the clear turquoise sea, nice white sand and very few people so far in May, 2017. Tourists are still reluctant to return. We’ll see what it will be like in June-August.

2. Food, hotel and various health spa services prices are 1/2 to 1/3, sometimes even as cheap as 1/4, of those you’d expect to pay in the West. But the quality of accommodations and food is as good, or better. Fresh fruits and veggie prices are especially strikingly low compared to Western, while the freshness and quality is usually substantially higher.

***Just to mention, as everywhere in the Mediterranean, you have to be careful not to get a major sun burn, even in mid-May.

Vids below are by an ex-Ukrainian Mikhail Volin (YT channel ‘ The Notes of Slavs in Russia’) who had to flee prosecution in his native city of Melitopol, following the 2014 Kiev coup. Typical of millions of other Ukrainians, he is now a Russian citizen, enjoying his freedom and much higher standard of living, and happily residing in Moscow.

Sorry for the ‘Ukraine’ slip, I did promise this post to be politics lite… Ah, well, can’t hide from reality.

But back to Alanya. Basically, the main message of this post is that Turkey has decent and new tourism infrastructure at very low prices, warm sea and all the sun you can get. Real estate is equally new and cheap, in part because of the instability of the region. But places like Alanya are tourism oriented and seem to be in another world – far away from conflict.

Video 1: Kleopatra Beach, Alanya

Video 2: Alanya prices. Beginning of video: bus ride, mall and supermarket. At 18:10 starts bazaar and fruit/veggie prices to die for. Prices are in Turkish Liras. To convert into USD: 1 Turkish Lira equals 0.28 US Dollar, or 28 cents. On the video, the Russian blogger converts everything into rubles, of course, but you can see prices in Liras displayed on camera. I was especially struck by 1.5 kilos of strawberries for $2 (that’s more than 3 pounds!) and 1 kilo (over 2 pounds) of fresh tomatoes for 28 cents and 56 cents!

***One caveat with Turkey: at the bazaar Mikhail mentions ‘standing guard over his girlfriend Elena,’ while she bargains for gifts for relatives back home, because ‘you can’t let a girl out alone in those parts.’ Incidentally, this is the case in any Middle Eastern country, and in Caucasus, as well. So, anyone who decides to explore those parts – do keep it in mind!

QUANTUM AND GEO CALIBRATIONS 

ABBREVIATIONS:
QC = Quantum (cosmic energy) Calibration
CHI = Chi (earthly energy) Calibration
GC – Geo Calibration​​

ALANYA, TURKEY:

QC:  180 – pride

CHI: 195 – yearning/striving

GC: 200 – courage/expansion

Kleopatra Beach: QC 200 ; CHI 210 – both are courage/expansion

Bazaar in Alanya: QC 280 ; CHI 285 – both are neutrality/friendliness

INTERPRETATIONS:

It’s a mixed bag, yet with some promise.

Below min. positive level of 200 for QC and CHI. GC is on the level of pride: typical of the West and well below what I want to see – disappointing. However, CHI shows how much the locals are striving to please the tourists. This could be the low season calibration and could go up when and if tourism returns in earnest, and if Trukey manages to stabilize. That’s why at present it’s so cheap there, by the way!

And now look at GOOD positive values for GC, K. Beach and especially the bazaar! Nice, strong CHI for the last 2!

ERDOGAN’S WAR!

(Consequences of Erdogan-Putin Meeting 8/9/16)

ESR13 Erdogan's War

.

ESR13 summary and description

On August 9, 2016 Turkish President Erdogan arrives to St. Petersburg, Russia, to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time since Turkish Airforce shot down Russian Su24 jet in late fall 2015. Russia retaliated with massive economic sanctions and across the board Turkish bans. But recently, Erdogan sent a surprise letter of apology to Putin. Following that, Russia warned Erdogan of the planned Turkish military coup, thus saving his presidency and his life.

Amid continuing war in Syria spearheaded by Russian Airforce, Turkey had served as safe haven and training grounds for ISIS terrorists. Turkey has benefited greatly from the black market ISIS oil sales, drug, human and artifact trafficking through its territory. At the same time, Turkish NATO bases had for decades been one of the strongest concentrations of US military power stationed abroad, and directed primarily against Russia, as well as helping to control the Middle East.

The EU refugee crisis, orchestated by the US and Turkey weakened the EU and made the population and politicians alike question the validity of open borders and neoliberal policies. Angela Merkel lost much of her former clout by welcoming a million plus refugees without any necessary checks of their legitimacy and association with ISIS. After it became clear that neither Germany nor EU were prepared to cope with such influx, she offered Turkey a 6 bln euro bribe to keep refugees away from EU shores. To bribe Erdogan, Merkel also allowed the prosecution of a comedian who wrote a mocking poem about Turkish leader, thus going against the core European principle of freedom of speech. Merkel’s actions turned into a complete fiasco. In protest, German Bundestag finally decided to recognize Turkish slaughter of millions of Armenians in early 20th century as genocide (something many other countries, including Russia, have done years ago).

In response, Erdogan banned German MPs from visiting German troops at a Turkish NATO base, therefore creating a rift within NATO. Simultaneously, Erdogan threatened to expel US troops from its bases, while allowing Russians to use them. A serious conflict began between Turkey and US. No matter how much US tries to downplay it, Turkey’s growing rift with US and NATO is apparent.

What do all these perplexing and contradictory events mean for the very survival of NATO?
What does all this mean for Turkey and the Middle East?
Are US and NATO about to lose Turkey as their key ally?
Why did Putin warn Erdogan of the upcoming coup and how did Russians know about it?
Why did Turkish military coup fail?
Was it a false flag or a real coup gone wrong and who is truly behind it?
Erdogan’s purges: what’s really going on?
Will USA extradite Fethullah Gülen to keep its bases in Turkey?
Will Turkey welcome Russian jets on NATO bases?
What is behind Erdogan’s stunning turnaround and letter of apology to Russia, and what is the future of Russia-Turkey relations?
Should Erdogan’s apology and visit be considered Russia’s major win?
Is Turkish Stream back on the agenda?
Does this turnaround signal a shift in the balance of power in the Black Sea region and the Middle East?
What does it mean for the future of the US Empire?

EARTH SHIFT AT WORK:
End of NATO & shakeup of entire Western system?
Does Erdogan’s turnaround signal the strengthening of Russia and Earth Shift?
