Kim and Katherine Morgan took their Langley Advance with them to Turkey in June, arriving five days after major demonstrations in Istanbul and Ankara “which started presumably over the removal of some trees in a park in Istanbul,” Kim reported, adding that the demonstrations were different from the Arab spring of 2012 in other parts of the Middle East.
“We were a little apprehensive at first, but experienced no issues whatsoever. The people were very friendly and the sheer diversity of the country, its history, and hundreds of well-preserved ancient ruins made this a must country to experience. Oh, and I’ve never eaten so much watermelon in my life!”
Just behind the Advance is the Blue Mosque in the historic Sultanahmet district of Istanbul, with the Sea of Marmara in the background.
They also visited the ancient Roman theatre in Hierapolis in the south of Turkey.
