Okay, I’ve harped on this before, but mayhap you didn’t believe me.
So I’m gonna quote it–with links–and then I’m gonna post pics. And you, dear reader, can decide. This is about Dogubayazit, my favorite frontier town. It’s in Turkey, across the border from Iran. And my quarrel is with Lonely Planet. YOU be the judge.
Dogubayazit is described by Lonely Planet as a “dusty frontier town crawling with soldiers (which) has few charms of its own.” See the link. Proof. Yes?
And now, Exhibit A through F–namely, my photos of said “dusty frontier town…with few charms of its own.” Tell me, is that how you’d describe this gem? 🙂 Photos below:
So–what do you think? Dusty frontier town lacking charm? Or hawt and colorful frontier town that yearns for exploration? 🙂
