For those who consider this part of the world some war torn dung-heap slum of rabble-rousing mobs who deserve nothing better…. well, this is Ankara, a normal modern bustling and thriving city. Or at least it was.

Originally there was a short video showing almost deserted streets – the sad reality of fear.

However, for some reason the video has since been withdrawn. Sometimes these things happen here – media is a tricky business here.

    It’s very sad. Violence isn’t the answer to anything. I’ve never been to Turkey but always wanted to visit. I think there’s amazing history in that part of the world.

    I hate to think that fear wins….The world is too big & complex for narrow definitions! And sadly, the video is refusing to play…


  3. Turkey always welcomed me with warmth, good humor and liveliness. I am so sorry for the violence.

    As you know Spike Turkey is one of our favourite travel destinations. Our hearts hurt for the people and the country.

    With a heavy heart and much sadness I pray for peace to come to your part of the world and to all those other parts so stricken!



  6. I can’t access the video, but I’m sad to read this. To too many people and places, this is now a sad reality.



  7. I am really sorry to see the return of violence and attacks in Turkey. I wish you lots of courage and a return to normal soon…(Suzanne)
