There are beautiful parks in the area, I love talking to the elder people who sat all day in the shadow playing local Turkish games and Chess.
One day an old man invited us into his home and that was very interesting. He had a lot of old things as statues, carpets, leather statues. And of couse he invited us to eat with his family. The local Turkish meal we was served was marvelous!
I still have contact with his son who was in my age. Very friendly people.
