Last of Ankara!

Rotary is truly amazing! They paid $2000 per bus for 22 buses to take students from Istanbul to Ankara for the anniversary of Ataturk's death. They went to the mansolenm and the Independence War Museum. While we were there we had tea with the top official in the Turkish military, but for me the highlight was the students asking me questions to practice their English...they were so cute!! They get so excited to use it especially with a real "American."

Yay! I'm glad you had such a nice time. Mark another capital down for you! I hope it was worth getting up a few hours after you went to bed! :-)
