Visit to Antakya

We got up very early to visit Antakya, capital town of the Hatay province. It was a two-hour-and-a-half drive.

First we visited a secondary school similar to Kilis's Ögretmen Lisesi. The headmaster and some other people were all day with us, guiding us to the different sights in their town: Saint Peter's Church and other Christian and Jewish temples.

After lunch they invited us to an important mosaic museum in the area.

We had a time to relax in a big park in the town. There was a funny monkey in a cage which made everybody laugh. He drank and ate anything that people gave him.

Lastly we went to the Mediterranean seaside to enjoy the sunset.
