I visited Turkey for the first time fee weeks ago and it was such a wonderful experience.
Turkey is a big Country in terms of land Mass not as big as Nigeria though but it us huge in comparism to neighboring countries(about 700,000 sqr km). It's diverse in culture, language, religion and even geographical local (part is located in Asia and the other part in Europe).
In Turkey you have the Turks, kurds, minority Arabs,amanians .
I visited 3 cities during my stay Antayka , Gaziantep and Istanbul.

Antayka is located in Hatay province of southern Turkey, it's bordered by the meditarian sea and Idleb Governorate of Northwest Syria( less than 1 hour drive to Syria) the border is closed because of the war, I was told by my Turkish friend that prior to the war people do go too idleb for groceries and vegetables because they are cheaper compared to Antakya.
Antakya has a beautiful landscape, it's a mountanious region and the city is situated in a valley with the famous Orontes river running across the center of the city onto Syria.
I didn't do much sightseeing here though as I was there for work related visit.
Enjoy the few shots

Falafel hummus, this is generic food in the middle East.
You have the falefel balls (looks like beans cake) the hummus with olive oil(yummy), the flat bread and some vegetables.

Gaziantep Castle, is a castle first built by the Hittite Empire as an observation point and later built into a main castle by the Roman Empire on top of a hill in the center of Gaziantep, Turkey in 2nd and 3rd century AD. It underwent further expansion and renovation under Emperor Justinianus between 527 and 565 AD.The circumference of the round shaped castle is 1200 meters. The walls are built of stone and the castle consists of 12 towers.

The castle has been renovated numerous times and took its final shape in 2000. Today, the castle is used as the Gaziantep Defence and Heroism Panoramic Museum, and a documentary regarding the defence of the city against the invading French troops after the fall of the Ottoman Empire runs periodically.

Compliment of the season to you all, been a bit busy lately.
I didn't do much exploring since my last post, but I still have pictures from my last visit to Turkey.
I visited Jerash few weeks ago and I have some amazing pictures to share.
Jerash is located in Jordan, the city in one of the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world which dates back as far as 7500 BC.
