Do they communicate in Armenia (the language) in this school? Just by looking at these photos - I can see the complicated aspects in Turkey's society. The mixture of people, ethnic groups...etc. Heard people compared the situation to Mexico - though the latter is of a much bigger scales in terms of the geographical spread of the ethnic origins I think.

It looks a world away from big cities like Istanbul or Ankara.


Katy - No, Turkish is taught in all schools in Turkey. It's only been very recently that there have been TV and radio programs in languages other than Turkish. It is very complicated and a bit sensitive. People are just coming to terms with some of the issues now.

More to come on Mardin. It is very different from Istanbul (haven't made it to Ankara yet).
