Eastern Turkey This is the area if you want the non-touristy areas.  Only in the last year or so have people been going to the east due to the conflicts between the Kurdish population and the government.  The government has been oppressing the Kurds for many years (such as making it illegal for anyone to even speak Kurdish).  Bruce traveled for 2 weeks with his friend Noam, as Julia went home for a wedding.
