Turkey 3 October: Pozantı - Niğde
Welcome to Anatolia.
Pozantı was very kind to us with the accommodation and dinner. After days of running it was very rewarding.
The city headed by Mayor Mustafa Çay also does many many other projects for the people. It was truly inspiring to have a chat with the Mayor and see how the small village quickly grew into such nice town! He definitely has a big heart for the local people.
Another school and yet another kind of kids. It's interesting how the character of places and people changes so quickly here.
Hacı Avşar, the Mayor of Ulukışla was very kind to invite us for çay into his office. As in Pozantı they too strive to improve the life of locals.
As it was getting cold outside we enjoyed very much local lentil soup. With extra chilli and lemon it was excellent for running!
After some çay with the school representatives we presented the school the Certificate of Appreciation.
It's one of the most preserved, with integrated heating system, stables, inn and hamam (turkish bath).
