Safe arrival in Ankara

We had a good flight on Lufthansa to Munich, and made the connection to Ankara. Several pieces of luggage missing. These are from folks who made connections from their hometown to New York Tuesday. Hopefully the bags will be here later tonight or tomorrow.

It is warm here in Anatolia today–probably in the upper 80s. We had difficulty in getting a hotel in Ankara because of some government conference. We had to settle for the airport hotel. It is not as nice as we might have had in the city, but it is satisfactory.  We are a considerable distance from the area where the bombing took place on Tuesday.

Tomorrow we travel about 3 hours east of Ankara to visit the land of the Hittites. When we return I hope to post a photo from that area.
