Had a free morning before leaving for Konya. George Chinnery from the US Embassy kindly escorted me, dodging various May Day protests through the city in order to see the old city, Ataturk’s mausoleum, and good views of the city. A bit of the sounds of Turkey in the link above (short video). A few photos below.
I am feeling slightly less dazed and confused, and have managed to sleep a bit. Work begins tomorrow.
Leaving for Konya in about an hour. Time to get packed up.
