This incredible city is one of the few places in the World that I feel uncomfortable being in. Not near as much as the cities in Afghanistan, but still a place that my core does not like. Hopefully, I will be there only once more before heading back to the States, and will leave it for the good man who will replace me in Ankara.
But, regardless of how I feel, I am amazed at the beauty of the place. This may be hard for some of you to understand, but Gaziantep has some of the best food I have ever eaten, with the exception of BBQ in Ron’s backyard.
The only pictures I have to show you are of a section of the market area where several of us went to purchase lamps that are made in Gaziantep. I purchased a set which we will leave packed up until we get to Sao Paulo. Below is the type of lamp I purchased.The following images are taken inside the first coffee company in Turkey. Or at least that is what I am told.I went up the stairs and took the following pictures below. A picture of the Brew-Master below.The group of us trying the pistachio coffee. An amazing smooth and sweet coffee!And lastly, a quiet evening outside the hotel before leaving the next morning.We are heading to a resort in MUĞLA, Turkey Monday morning and will take a week-long and well deserved vacation. I should be able to post another butt-load of pictures.
