Goodbye Ankara

I can't believe that just over eight years ago I came to this city alone and am now leaving it with my own family.

Ankara has been a great place to live, I have seen it change so much over the past years, and I'm sure when we get back it will be a completely different place!

I'll miss so many things about the city, the fact that you can go everywhere by taxi for under 25 bucks, my pickle guy, the variety of shopping centres where I almost always see at least one of my students, it really is a big city that feels like a small town.

Tonight, I'm not saying goodbye to Turkey, we'll be back, but our time in Ankara is finished. This city truly has changed my life.

  1. I ran across your Blog today and had to write because we just moved from Brussels to Ankara. It is almost like we are trading places. You are probably already there - just wanted to let you know that despite all the grey, rain and somewhat miserable people, my 5 years in Belgium were glorious! If you have any questions or need anything, let me know. I'm sure going to read your blog about Ankara!
