Day 2: Bosphorus Cruise and Ankara, Turkey - Mausoleum of Ataturk

Day 2:

After an early morning cruise on the Bosphorus, we headed for the capital of Ankara to visit the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk- the First President and the Father of Turkey.

After our cruise, we drove on the mausoleum in Ankara. 




Steps leading to the mausoleum were purposely made this way.  You're forced to look down so you don't trip, but at the same time you are keeping your head bowed as you approach the Mausoleum of Ataturk.
