Day 12: Turkey

Selam greetings from Turkey! Turkey Is an ancient country that has been settled for more than 8,000 years!...That's a long time!

  • Turkey has Roman ruins, huge cathedrals, and castles from the days of the knights and Crusaders. It is like stepping back in time - it's a really cool country!
  • The largest city, Istanbul, used to be known as Constantinople! This beautiful, old city lies in both Europe and Asia.
