Magic beans

A bean is just a bean.

Except when it's a magic bean.

Except when it's a plate of magic beans eaten at a monastery at the top of a mountain on an island in the Sea of Marmara.

You have just eaten such a plate of beans with shallots and parsley and tomatoes and olive oil, along with a plate of aubergines with yogurt, and dolmas.

And then you hiked down a cobblestone street away from the monastery until you reached the place when the phaetons were, and took a carriage ride back to your hotel, a place that has incense in the rooms and yoga on the patio.

And it's only day four of vacation.

Maybe tomorrow you'll come across a magic fish.
