From Mine Gursel: During yesterday’s (Oct. 15th, 2013) trip in the streets of the Sultanahmet region, RC also visited Istanbul High School, a privileged school which also has a history of students who left school to go for the war back during the Battle of Gallipoli.
Rumor has it the doorman did not recognize Russell (who was there with a bodyguard and a translator), and didn’t want to allow them inside. Then, the headmaster came down and it was, of course, all settled.
Funny story from the newspaper, Hurriyet.
PS: There are no pics with students only because it’s still a 9-day long public holiday in Turkey.
