Memories of Turkey, 1996-2000

We have been posted to Ankara, Turkey, twice -- from 1996 to 2000 and from 2003 to 2006. I have many pictures online from our second posting at http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/return_to_ankara and http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/istanbul_revisited as well as at http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/the_wonders_of_turkeys_cappadocia and http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/western_turkey_odyssey_in_progress after I got into digital, but none from our first tour there, when we traveled much of the country, including to the Southeast, the East and the Black Sea region. I finally found some print pictures that I had scanned from that time, while we were in Okinawa, in 2001. I started to post the old scans, but they were not so good, and I found I had also neglected some pictures that should go in the gallery, so I bought an Epson V39 for $79 and redid all the images (just what I did NOT want to do ;-)).
