At present, Turkey is going through a very difficult time. Tragedy has struck the nation in the form of a major mining disaster. Protests, riots, and police activity have been prominent since this accident. The Prime minister took a very nonchalant stance towards the victim’s families, and this did not go over well.
This is a guest post highlighting a different side of Turkey. The author will tell us about some amazing places that you can visit in the country. I think that we can all agree that the current events should not take away from the country’s charm. That being said, I wanted to put up this disclaimer, and state that our hearts go out to all of those who are suffering due to this horrible disaster. I hope things are settled, and that the families of these folks find peace.
