4. The hospital was very large and there were lots of people from early morning. However, since I was a foreigner I could see the dentist without waiting in line. The doctor investigated my tooth and prescribed the same medicine as the doctor in Erzincan. I took a selfie with the dentist. The dentists in Turkey are dandy.

10. Obsidian is a very important exhibit. This stone is easy to cut. The sharp edge is versatile in use. This a very important tool in Stone Age. Knife, arrow, spear are all originated from obsidian. It is found all over the world.

11. However, this stone was produced at limited areas. There was an academic report that people moved 1000 km in order to find this stone. It is frequently quoted that lack of obsidian introduced Bronze Age. It may not be true. New technology put an end to Stone Age.

19. The name of this lady was Songül Düger. She studied in America and now she works as cultural guide.

She is very much interested in No-Nukes movement. While I talked with her, she asked me “Why don’t you meet Islamic leader?” I told her that I tried, but I failed so far. I asked her to recommend. To tell the truth, I visited Korean Islamic mosque (Suni sect) and Embassy of Iran (Sia sect) several times without any success. She wrote me an E-mail to introduce an Islamic leader she knows. She will play an important role in relation with Islam.
