Travel Blogs from Ankara
Hello all, how is everyone? I am very sorry for the lack of blogs over the last few months but I have been very busy over the last 3 months, I have also been In and out of internet for the last 3 months as well. However there is no time to complain about what we can' t control, anyway. Very much has happened in the time since my last blog, I have been to a few places and done some things, so lets get into it.
Well it started with the old exchange students finally ...

... amazing archaeological displays that cover a time frame beginning with the Paleolithic period, on through the Assyrian and Hittite periods to the more 'modern' Greek, Roman, and Byzantine eras. It doesn't take us much time to make it through the museum. I actually make the self-guided tour two times.
We return to the hotel in time for lunch. A small group of us head back up the street to the coffee shop for a nice lunch accompanied by Coke in little ...
