Batman → Hasankeyf 31km Hitchhiked by Uncle_sam01 2
Alone

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… (read on in Trip)

To van or not to van

Very long wait in the nasty sun. SE Turkey was supposed to be great for HH, but so far it seemed average. Not quite sure whether this was an actual commercial minivan. It had a Batman sign, but there were only 4 kids inside (+driver) and they seemed related. The guy was ok with "no money", so I got in. Fed me lots of fruit (Malatya apricots), but didn't talk much. Once we got… (read on in Trip)

Driving school

Three guys who drove me around Elazig. Throughout the ride it became apparent that one of guys was learning how to drive. Short ride.

Strange guy

Very talkative older guy who drove me to a lake. Suggested good places to set up a tent, which I did. Kept acknowledging everything 3 times and never stopped talking.

Alone

Swedish Kurd

Really nice guy who spoke very good English as he lives in Sweden and was home for holidays. Worked as a social worker in jail. Short ride.

Village guys

Father and son. Didn't speak much English but gave me water and I was able to talk a little bit about mountain hiking with them in my limited Turkish.

Young guy going to Malatya

Nice young guy who was going precisely where I was heading on a fairly deserted road. While waiting I had a good German conversation with an older guy who sat at a bus stop and who'd lived in Germany. His sons still lived in Germany and his wife had recently passed away. It wasn't really clear what he was doing at the bus stop, as he just sort of hung around and talked to… (read on in Trip)

Alone Wild roadside coincidence single woman

My sister picked me up!

I was standing on the edge of the highway for less than a minute when I saw a minivan approaching. Two white 30-something ladies had horrified looks on their faces were in the front and I could tell they were not the type to stop. I put my thumb down… moments later, the van pulled over! Guess I was wrong… I started running up to it, and the side door slides open. My oldest… (read on in Trip)

Tonto Natural Bridge → Pine

Andrea was an older woman who was very excited to pick up a female hitchhiker. She said it reminded ber of her youth, when she was more free and less afraid.
