This is one of the painted domed ceilings of a mosque in the Odun Pazarı, old part of Eskişehir.
In this story I reminisce about first coming to Eskişehir and the people that helped us along the way.
ESKIŞEHIR means old city in Turkish but is actually known as a very modern, young person’s city or student city because of the two large universities located there, Anadolu Üniversitesi and Ozmangazi Üniversitesi. It is this Anatolian city located between İstanbul and Ankara where I spent my first months in Turkey through my student exchange in 2007.
