Interesting places

“You take interesting photos,” our tour guide told me. While I do wish that statement to be true, I think it would’ve been more correctly to say that I take pictures of interesting places.

Ever since one of my friends showed me pictures of her trip to Lake Van, I’ve dreamt of going there too. She has since dreamt of traveling in the surroundings of Van and to Doğubayazit more specifically. This week, I realized both my own and her dream.
