I've actually been to Mardin. It was years ago and we spent the evening sitting on a terrace that overlooked this plain. At nighttime you could see the famer's fires far out into the distance.
I also would love to visit this city and Midyat. I often read about it that Mardin has got very old buildings, looks like Jerusalem. Yes, one day I'll travel.
Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
