ashraf t :

I am thinking of driving my little Hatchback Pride Kia car from here, Tehran, Iran to Ankara, Turkey. I have driven from Tehran to Tabriz. From Tehran to Tabriz is 750 km. I have a map of Tehran to Europe. 09354002615 I would also like to learn Turkish if anyone can help please?

Leprechaun :
"Tehran-Iran distance is 2061 kms, would probably take more than 24 hours of drive. Have a look at the map here: "

I've had an online,(instant messener, email, web cam, and telephone) for nearly 7 yrs with a wonderful Turkish man, (with no intentions of wanting to come to the USA. He would like me to visit him,(his mom, and sister, and her daughter all live together), they live in Ankara, he works for Anadolu ajanci, he lives about a 15 min drive from the newspaper he works for, in a place called Emek, I think it is spelled..anyone know of that area of Ankara? His Apartment building is a 5 sided one-octagon shaped.. anyone ever saw it?

mertev :
"Ankara is a very nice city,one of the rare pre-planned cities in the world.Emek may be considered center but i'm afraid i can't say the very best part of the city.The buildings should be around 30 + years old or may be more. But anyway if you are planning to visit Turkey i believe you will like Ankara's social life,i suggest while you're here Istanbul is a must to see,you may also like Bodrum,Antalya etc.Have fun"
Eylül :
"i lived in Emek for 6 years. it is my second favourite place in Ankara. there are a lot of shops, cafes, restaurants there. you can even meet with celebrities. but it is not considered as the main center. Kızılay is the center or maybe even Ulus. but emek is an elite part of the city, i also attended a school there. i have seen many apartments but I'm not sure the one with 5 sides and octagon shaped. it doesn't mean there isn't any. emek is quite big ;)"

"I think you have asked this question a few months ago "

"The Hittites gave it the name Ankuwash, the Galatians and Romans called it Ancyra, and in the classical, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods it was known as Ἄγκυρα Ánkyra. Ankara also serves as the capital of the Province of Ankara. An alternate Turkish name was Engürü. Konya (Ottoman: قونیه; also Koniah, Konieh, Konia, and Qunia; historically known as Iconium (Latin), Greek: Ἰκόνιον ("Ikónion"))"

"hey if you wanna to learn something at first write it in English!!!! maybe Ankara and Konya has some Greek origins but its not important:) because every part of Turkey has big history..."

A mass rally has taken place in Ankara to protest against a government plan to ease a headscarf ban at universities. Secular Turks are against an amendment to the constitution...

Thousands of Turks have rallied in Ankara to protest against a government plan to allow women to wear the Islamic headscarf in Turkish universities. But is NOT allowing women to wear headscarfs secular?

Professor Yayla was charged with "insulting Ataturk" - the revered founder of modern Turkey - after he argued that the early years of the Turkish Republic were not progressive, politically.The professor was vilified by the Turkish press, suspended from work at an Ankara university - and brought to trial. Free speech seems to be an alien concept.

A unique play in an Ankara theatre ended with a standing ovation this week as the little-known actors -- transsexuals and gays raising their voice against discrimination -- fought back tears on stage.

According to my investigation, thousands of persons all over the world receive the home loans from various creditors. Therefore, there is a good chance to get a bank loan in any country.
