Erzurum – Turkey

After a night in the capital city of Ankara we purchased tickets on the Dogu Express (not really very express) Train which winds all the way east.  Whilst it wasn’t the quickest, it was a comfortable sleeper train and it did pass some great scenery through the mountains and countryside to get us to Erzurum 24 hours later.
Just arranging a friends Iranian visa here at the consulate before carrying on east towards the border, whilst he has been organising that I have been for a very authentic and local Turkish bath, including getting scrubbed very clean and a great sauna.
Here is the twin mineret mosque, the symbol of Erzurum.
