At long last, we are leaving Istanbul tomorrow for Antakya, in Hatay Province. Don’t get me wrong, Istanbul is an amazing city. In many ways, I feel lucky that we ended up staying here as long as we did.

But I’m looking forward to arriving in Hatay province. We have a number of potential options set up for working there, and we’ll post more once things are definite. For now, here are a few parting shots of Istanbul.

    Did you like Hatay? Where are your follow up posts? It is so good that you went because many people avoid that part of the country yet it is so rich in history and culture

      Hi Michael. Yes, we very much liked Hatay. We spent several weeks in Reyhanli and wrote a few posts about our time there on this blog. Thanks for your comments!
