Photographer's Note

Sadly, the ancient town of Hasankeyf dating back 12,000 years has been submerged by the Ilisu Dam since this was taken and the water level earlier this year was 1/2 way up the bg cliffs and rising. These are Turkish style teahouses taking advantage of the cool river breezes on a hot summers' day. You can see a short documentary here. New Hasankeyf looks rather bland and soul-less. Finally feeling a little better.
