So I start tomorrow and the weather forecast predicts thunderstorms. Not surprisingly I hope the forecast is wrong, way wrong. Because of this my mind is telling me to delay a day and have a look around Gaziantep. Unfortunately because I’ve publicly stated my intention to start in the morning I figure I should just crack on. I’m heading for a town called Nurdagi, apparently the western point of Kurdish influence, where all going well I’ll be allowed to sleep in the local mosque.
