Day 2: Ministry of Trade & Industry + Museum + HAMBURGER!!!

We met the Ministry of Trade and Industry yesterday, who spoke to us about Turkey's economic development and business situation.

Presenting him a "teacup" as a gift:

We then had an appointment for wine tasting.  A view from the bus of the countryside as we drove up to the Kavaklidere Winery:

Pics from the wine-tasting:

Driving to the Museum of Anatolian Civilization:

And we went out for dinner with 3 Turkish undergraduates and I got A HAMBURGER!!!  I was VERY EXCITED about this hamburger over yet another chicken kabob.  VERY EXCITED!  I don't know if I can emphasize it enough.  And Raminder got veggie pasta and so all was well.
