Turkey, A Land of Contrasts
I have often called Turkey "The Other Holy Land", because there are still many places, especially in rural areas, where life has not much changed since biblical times. "Shephards in the fields abiding...."
Donkeys as a means of travel and transportation:
Communal Wells and Bake ovens in the villages
Yet, in cities like Izmir and Instanbul with their streamlined banking, communication networks, dress styles and urban modernity, transportation and shopping centers, life is as cutting-edge modern as in any other world city.
That is the enigma and fascination of Turkey and there is no really no other way to discover the magic of this country than to live and experience it than to live it. Home exchange offers that incredible opportunity.
