... a shame.
From here almost the whole group ate at a local restaurant. I was the first one to arrive and they spoke no English, while I of course spoke no Turkish, they offered to try and converse in German, but I laughed and said 'Nein Duetch" which produced a few giggles from them.

The people who lived here were on the edge of amazing social, economic and domestic changes. They resided in clusters ...
... The Mevlana Museum is one of Turkey's premier museums. We saw many interesting relics in the well-curated displays and learned a lot about this fascinating, sometimes controversial order of Islam that became closely linked with the Ottoman sultans.
We next wandered through Konya's bazaar, which was notable for how non-touristy it felt. We walked for several blocks through what we referred to as the "Home Depot district", a series of shops selling sinks and ...
