23/08/07 Dogubayazit

This was the last leg of our turkey trip and the first one with rain 🙂Van Lake

The mountains are quite wild with a few scattered villages and a very heavy military presence.

Dogubayazit it’s a dusty little town with more soldiers than inhabitants. The views of mount Ararat are wonderful and the Ishakpasa Palace is really stunning.
