We went to Turkey in February 2013 with our own plan, which saw us being almost right at the Syrian border (their civil war was already in full swing then). These are the spots we touched, very memorable ones too — some are off the beaten track, which might interest some people. So please read the pictorials below, thanks.
THE NINETEEN STORIES FROM TURKEY
The sacred pond of Urfa, with water said to be originated from the flames burning Prophet Abraham, which miraculously changed into water (!), while the embers/sparks turned into some sort of (sacred) fish (!!), or so the locals tell us. The descendants of the magical fish are still here, swimming around happily, forbidden to be eaten by humans. Lucky fellas!
