Today we began our morning at 9:00 a.m. On a beautiful sunny day in Ankara.  Today we visited the Museum of Anatolian Civilzation.  In this museum one can see exhibits of gold, silver, glass, marble and bronze works dating back as far as the second half of the first millenium BC.  There are artifacts from the Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Early Bronze, and Hittite Periods.  It was truly amazing to see so many artifacts still intact as they were thousands of years ago.  The next place we visited was the Tomb of King Midas.  He is a famous king remembered in Greek Mythology for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold.  After driving for seven hours we have finally arrived in Bursa.
