Participants will have free time to engage in an optional activity at this time and are free to eat in a restaurant of their choice at their own expense. This trip is designed for anyone who will be comfortable on a trek where we'll be hiking most of the day for six days in a row. Good general physical condition -- as well as hiking stamina -- is important. On average, we will spend six to seven hours a day hiking with a daypack for a distance from three to ten miles per day. Elevation gain and loss average less than 2, feet per day.
There will be plenty of rest stops during the hikes.

After her graduation from TED Ankara College , she went to Canada and pursued her studies and professional life there. She studied Literature and Sociology at the University of Winnipeg.

Even when married women with children continue to work full-time, how many of their husbands men cook, clean or look after their children? Following her graduation she began working as a researcher, broadcaster and then as a producer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
This book is a cleverly crafted blend of personal memoir and travel literature through which she discusses a wide-ranging set of issues affecting contemporary Turkey, including the Kurdish conflict, the controversial GAP project and the conflict between the secular and the religious in Turkey. In particular, however, she focuses on the role of women in Turkish society. During her visit to this world-famous site she focuses as much on the role of the local women who help the multi-national archeological team in their work as the dig itself.
She visits the temple of Pessinus, the city of Midas and the Artemision at Ephesus where she draws comparisons between the noisy, frenzied worship of Artemis with that of Cybele and sees the way the ancient Greek goddess becomes synchronized with the native Anatolian goddess. The poverty and hardship endured by these women is a testimony to their resilience and strength.
