Photographer's Note

And the palace itself- Ishak Pasha Saray which, as Bailey mentioned, decorates a 100 lira note. Far, far away, away from tourist resorts of western Turkey, 1500 km away from Istanbul, but only a step from ancient Persia, Ishak Pasha overlooks the valley with a homy town of Dogubayazit (down on the left, beyond the palace), a town whose hospitable inhabitants put us up for two nights, made breakfast, offered help without which we wouldn't have caught our plane back home. Now, as I think about it, perhaps we shouldn't have accepted the last one...
