I recently spent 3 weeks in Turkey and saw a lot of apiaries, but only got to chat with the guy who had the hives pictured below. It was hard for us to talk specifics on the variety of honey bees, but I know for sure he did not like Italian bees, he tried them once and - "they build, build, build, and no honey!". The landscape is the reverse view while standing at the hives - how cool is that. The other photos show specialty honey stores in the cities. There were stands along the roads throughout the country, with many of them selling honey in recycled 1-liter soda bottles. I need to start making more time for visiting apiaries when traveling - it is very different than how we market, sell and consume honey.
