I've been staying in the Kızılay area in Ankara. It is always buzzing, with tons of places to eat and drink - though it does seem to shut down earlier than equivalent areas in Istanbul. When I got here Friday night it looked like there had just been some kind of protest in Kızılay because there were huge numbers of police in riot gear. Last night also I noticed lots of police out, near a feminist march.
Tonight I am leaving on a 6PM train for Kars. I get there at about 6:30PM tomorrow. Since I didn't reserve early enough I am stuck in a couchette instead of the first class sleeping car. Should be interesting.
