SELÇUK: Seeking to save money, we moved to the much cheaper Hotel Nazar, which provided us with almost as nice a room for a fraction of the price, run by a very hard-working and friendly staff made up entirely of family members. We ran into other tourists who reported that Artemis Guest House (Jimmy's Place) was a nice place to stay. We were so plagued by touts for hotels, restaurants, and shops that we finally had to give up the pleasure of strolling around the city. In some places we couldn't take ten steps without being greeted with "Excuse me, where you are from?" The city is set up to handle far more tourists than it gets these days, and there is an air of desperation about the businesses here.
