One Weekend In Ankara

I decided to visit the capital of Turkey towards the end of December and to see my family and to get to know more about my roots. I went to the grave of the first President of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, in the Anitkabir. It’s a very big complex

with a lot of soldiers standing there guarding the monuments. The history is described in detail, and you feel very thankful to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk for what he has done for the country, and at the same time very saddened by his early death.
