Just out of Curiosity

I don't know about you, but one thing that occupies some of my time is studying maps. This is what took me to Van, I could see a big lake surrounded by mountains far away from Western Turkey. So I went.

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:The top photo is of Mt. Ararat which you will see peeking out around the area. The bottom photo is on an island in Lake Van, it is a 9th centry Armenian church.
