Narrow streets in the center of the island by tractor carrying grapes, wineries salkımından leave immediately bored. The roads among vineyards such as vine leaves, it smells sweet.
Five years ago, when I went to Bozcaada for the first time in the middle of September, schools opened, the crowds drawn, vintage, was about to end. 5 log, rent a bike, run-down, turned the pedal off course different every day, my soul to light during the winter in my memory images, smells, sounds you saved. The grape harvest has become a ritual for me after this trip. Repeated in two years. The last two years in September, "Tenedos" he sayıklıyorum, but did not go to the fortune.
