1276. Travel Stories - Matching civilian and military fashion - Turkey

A rare image


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Changing of the guard at the Ataturk Museum, Turkey
attracts some tourists to pose with the soldier. One Asian tourist told another that  the soldier
would feel irritated by their posing. What do you think? I think it is a peaceful distraction


We had to alight from the coach and walked through the X-ray machine minus our metallic objects left inside the bus. Then we would go up the bus. "Yet the coach is not searched," our guide said. Our coach's gear level suddenly froze and the driver could not move it. So fortunately, there were 2 coaches in this tour and the other coach driver picked us up to drive to the Museum. The luggage compartment of our coach was opened and the problem was resolved. Some tied up mechanical problem fixed at the luggtage area to free the clutch which was a long "manual" type lever unlike modern ones with short lever as in the other Mercedes coach. Ours was a Mitsubishi or some model.
