This a view from the Ankara Kalesi (fortress) overlooking most of the city. This view shows the many hovels (almost a shantytown) spread out over the hills. You may notice the taller apartment buildings in the middle right of the picture. Apparently the developers offer to give apartments to the occupants of the homes and, therefore, do not have to buy the land. I expect this whole area will be filled with apartment buildings in a few years.
