... s soccer stadium (which Dennis took the time to admire, explaining its relative merits and demerits to Keith and me while I daydreamed about baklava).
We wandered through the city's main park, the excessively-named 100 Yil Ataturk Kultur Parki. Though we only explored the outskirts, the park was very pretty, and supposedly the largest city park west of the Euphrates. We knew that we had one thing in particular to see, ...
... others were removed from walls. The museum displays the mosaics based on the manner in which they were originally displayed in the homes of wealthy merchants and officials. The wall mosaics are 'hung’ on the walls much like pictures would be in an art gallery. The floor mosaics are laid out on the floor. Plexiglas 'bridges’ and surrounding walkways allow the viewers to stand over the mosaics to more fully view their artistic details.
... chairs in the main man's swanky office. He began questioning us – why we were there, who we were visiting, what we planned to do. The main focus however seemed to be on our occupations and why we had no identification saying our professions on us. Then when Rob could not remember the phone number of the place that he worked, the man became very suspicious. Rob was clearly very nervous and the interrogator was suitably suspicious.

The constant looks from the people of the city made me paranoid, and although we experienced similar looks in Albania, this felt different, like we were outsiders unwelcome, rather than curiosities.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAnadolu Evleri Gaziantep
Located in the old city of Gaziantep and only minutes away from a wonderful but quiet bazaar, the Anadolu Evleri was a pleasure to stay in.
Our room was on the first floor, off the courtyard. It had a large double bed in an arched alcove, a modern bathroom and a rather large sitting area with two large chairs, a couch, and a TV. First floor rooms had no air conditioning but did have fans. The bathrooms are modern with shower but no tub. The room was certainly comfortable and memorable. There is free wi-fi and meals are served outside in the courtyard area.
