Date: Aug 29, 2013

The plan was for Necdet to pick us up at our hotel to take us to the whirling dervishes by taxi. Unfortunately the time had been changed (from 8pm), so we had to go in the middle of rush hour. The traffic was totally jammed, so we got out and walked for about 30 minutes to get there. The good part was that Necdet called, and the start was delayed until we arrived. Not his fault, but because of this we also missed having a good explanation/discussion of the meaning of the ritual.
