This is Ahmed. He has driven the van for the entire eastern part of turkey. I spent a lot of time chatting away to Ahmed. At the end of the week I discovered he really doesn't understand English nearly as well as I thought he did.
When we got to his home town of Urfa he took us to his favorite kebab shop and then a place with live traditional Kurdish music where he busted a move doing dancing Kurdish style. I got to sit on pillows on there floor.
