Last day in Ankara

A few more pictures from the school.

One of the classes was learning about shadows; later at recess, they were trying to catch them!

Ataturk was the first president of the country; he is held in high esteem even today. Under his leadership, thousands of new schools were built, primary education was made free and compulsory, while the burden of taxation on peasants was reduced. Tim saw a number of pictures, statues, etc., of him around the school.

 Tim spoke Korean to these girls, and they were thrilled!

Out to dinner. "ACSI" flat bread, decorated with sesame seed.

Baklava to top off the meal.

Turkish coffee. Yum!

Double yum! (why does this remind me of mud??!!)
