Taking your requests

Posted by Callan Bentley

In a week, I’ll be in Turkey.

This is very exciting: Turkey has tons of cool geology, and a modicum of cool history as well. Anyone have any suggestions for stuff I should do/see/visit while there? Anything you particularly want to see geoblogged? Any “assignments”?

Lily and I only have two weeks, so we will be sticking to western Turkey (Mount Ararat will have to wait), so bear that in mind.

I’ll be back in Turkey in October for the Tectonic Crossroads conference, and (I anticipate) at a later time, too: I really want to climb Mount Ararat, but I figure I’ll need at least a week to get out there, climb the mountain, and get back to civilization. So: that will have to wait.
