Our driver’s name is called Said. His smile flashes a golden tooth or two. Everything I read turns out to be true. Urfa is Arabic, Kurdish, and Turkish. You can see Syria from here. It’s also an extremely important place for a couple of major religions, as it’s the birthplace of Abraham. I drank water from his cave. It’s a crazy place, truly very different from everything I’ve so far. Tourbusses of Arabic tourists, chadors and beards everywhere. And a lot of stares for 3 blond tourists.
