Default Re: Are You sure that Turkey is located in the Middle East?

Hi
A solution would be to list Turkey in both Europe and Asia, then post the pictures according to location.... The same could be done with Russia...

Laurent's idea sounds logical. Thanks.

Also For The USA, France, GB, Netherlands, etc.

Yes, Im sure. Because the location displayed on TrekEarth is the GEOGRAPHIC location (even though a small part of Turkey is actually located in Europe) - and has therefore nothing to do with politics, economy, religion, or any other things.
Its - as I said - just about Geography.

Greetings from me, a Geography teacher and Turkey lover.
Have a nice day!

I want to mention again that Middle East IS NOT a GEOGRAPHIC Region. It is a POLITICAL region.

Falklands is probably 10.000 km, may be more. Hawaii is not in the continent, etc...

I have just seen your post and looked to be the most reasonable one, so I do agree with your comment...

I have no problem with being declared in the middle east. being shown in Europe is not a source of pride
