Visiting Turkey is like seeing a diorama of the last 5000 years of human history. Peoples and cultures have evolved, died away, and been replaced in this place, but their presence is palpable and present. I know of nowhere else where the past and present live so seamlessly side by side.

Another surprise (at least to me): despite their sometimes fierce mien, the Turkish people are open, friendly, sophisticated and enjoy showing off their great country.
