Ezrurum to Sivas

IMG_4816IMG_4814The day started at 8am as usual but instead of getting in the cars and heading out,  we decided to walk around the town and visit some of the old sights. This was interesting….a madrassah, mosque and the citadel on the hill.

We left the town at 10.30 and drove through beautiful hilly landscape to a luncheon spot in the shade of some trees.IMG_4888IMG_4856IMG_4860IMG_4849IMG_4834

12 kms from our destination we were stopped at a police checkpoint. We had seen several already in Turkey but were waved through. This time however, the police were more serious and 2 of the cars were searched. I am sure they were looking for weapons as the Kurdish unrest is not that far away. The police were pleasant and after doing the sample two car search and checking passports we were sent on our way.
Dinner at the hotel and an enjoyable walk around the old part of the town after dinner.
