Day 22 of 32 – The Protest

29 Nov

So I survived today’s protest march. I wasn’t too worried. One of the veteran demonstrators was wearing a pair of crazy high-heeled shoes – and this put my mind at ease. I figured this was evidence that there wouldn’t be a lot of running.

But the cops, they weren’t messing around. They brought one of their tanks and this one guy had this real cool-looking paintball gun, or that’s what it looked like anyway. Anyone out there know what it’s for? Rubber bullets? Beanbag gun? Tagging troublemakers?

Also, his head is way too big for his body.

And is it just me or do these guys look like they’re extras from the sequel to Spaceballs?

For a group of medical professionals, there was an unusual amount of cigarettes and hearing damage. The Turks love smoking and loud things.

The bus ride home was uneventful – I slept for about half of it. Ankara seems like a pretty boring city – relative to Istanbul anyway.
