In Iskenderun, we visited various sites in Antioch, including St. Peter's Church, a museum full of ancient mosaics and more. When we visited a castle, there were a lot of little children waiting to hand us wildflowers and weeds they had just picked. At St. Peter's, EMYR participants armed with video cameras and digital cameras were mobbed by school kids who wanted to get on camera!
