Arrived in Ankara!

Hi friends! We arrived safely in Ankara, Turkey's capital, this morning.

Upon arrival we headed straight to the Antikabir (Mausoleum) of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic and the country's first President. If you don't really know much about Atatürk, make sure to ask one of our students about him---they should have a lot to tell you! The lower portion of the monument has a sizable museum dedicated to Atatürk and the Turkish War of Independence.


Changing of the guard.
