It was the chance encounters with friendly people around Turkey that made the tour so interesting. We stopped often for flocks of sheep, people picking cotton by hand, harvesting sugar beets by hand and a whole range of other rural activities. These three men were all shepherds, two were moving their large flock down the highway to different pastures and the old man was looking after a few sheep under the fruit trees near his home. All welcomed us and posed for our group with much laughter and sign language.
