... doesn't have to be the "School Uniform", some kids roll up to school in black set of jeans with a black Ralph Lauren (This is a majorly popular brand amongst the rich kids here haha) jumper on.

I later found out that this was Ankara Citadel and was a historic part of the city’s defences, makes sense as you could see for miles around across dry semi-desert land. I found a perch at the top of the big hill and looked down across the city for some time, I forgave it for not having as many sights ...
