Awesome young students
Three students driving to Hasankeyf to hangout with their friend. Invited me for çay (which is how every ride ends in Kurdistan apparently) and we talked a lot. Once they found out I wanted to sleep in my tent they really bend over backwards to find a safe place and ended up talking to a “picknick area” owner who allowed me to set up tent on his land near the river. As I was about to go to sleep, the guy calls me back and tells me “Samuel do not be afraid.” As soon as he said that, his cop friend (who I had talked to before when drinking cay with the owner) pulls out his gun and starts shooting in the air. It turned out his uncle was celebrating his birthday at that place. What a great day.
