Next destination: Salt Lake. We got off the bus, and quickly walked to the Lake take a picture then back to the bas. But then, sales person stopped us and ask us to try their products. We refused but they insisted so we entertained them. They put the scrub on hand and we scrubbed it. Me and my sis wanted to wash our hand but they refused to give us water but explained about their products. Damn you guys. It's fucking cold outside. The weather is getting colder.and windy and somehow I felt sick. Yea, I am sick. Later on, we continued our journey to Ankara. The second largest city.

Next destination: Ataturk Mausoleum (1881-1938). The founder and father of Turkish Republic. Turkish citizen loves their country. Independence Day, Turkish citizen will come here to visit the Ataturk Mausoleum. You will be amazed on how they design (interior design), they placed the monuments, pictures, story line of the Independence Day, wars etc. They even painted certain picture frames in gold.
