Sunday. Last day in Ankara.
We went to a park on the campus of one of the universities. It was a beautiful day. People were out barbequing and simply being with family and friends. It was a nice way to relax and reflect.
We went back to the apartment to play some monopoly and hang out before dinner. It was a Turkey monopoly, which took me a little time to adjust to. Although it looked like I was down and out, I had a secret weapon that I was preparing to unleash.
We took a break to start preparing dinner. During that interval, we realized we needed to pack up and head to the bus station to take an overnight bus back to Istanbul to catch my plane. Yikes!
We threw our stuff in our bags, drove to the station and had a few minutes to tell my newfound friends how much I (we) appreciated their hospitality.
Thank you, Mustafa and Ayşe (and my dear friend) for the perfect visit.
Night bus to Istanbul. Hustle to airport. Fly to Georgia.
Until next time, Turkey. The end.

You just might find if you give it time
You will wave hello again
You just might wave hello again”
