French tourists, who set out on a European tour with their caravans, camped at Meke Lake in the Karapınar district of Konya, Turkey, and also attended a local wedding in the district.
A year ago, the French couple Bernard and Rodrigue Ysee set out on a tour from France with their caravans, and after traveling across Europe, they arrived in Turkey. Here, they met their fellow countrymen Brigitte Pietot and Guy Urvoy, and together, the French travelers decided to explore Turkey. They visited many places in Turkey, such as Istanbul, Antalya, and Pamukkale, and later, they came to Meke Lake, which they had seen in photos, and camped there. While at Meke Lake, the French tourists had the opportunity to witness both sunset and sunrise and enjoyed hiking.
Subsequently, the French visitors attended a local wedding dinner in the district and savored the traditional wedding dishes of Karapınar. They inquired about Turkish cuisine and took plenty of photographs. The French tourists also expressed their gratitude to the women chefs who prepared the meals.
Rodrigue Ysee expressed that Meke Lake is magnificent and said, "It's a place with beautiful views, but it's saddening to see the state of the lake. We had seen it in photos, but now it's dried up. The food was excellent, and the hospitality of the Turkish people is wonderful."
Brigitte Pietot also praised the meals, saying, "There were so many dishes we had never tasted before. It was a unique and unforgettable experience. We would like to thank the Turkish people for welcoming people from another country and offering them food. We will definitely share this with others in France."
