We stumbled into Mardin not really knowing what to expect. We knew it was a 'historic' town, set dramatically on a hilltop, crowned by a 14th century castle, but once you've seen that..what is there?
The answer was 'plenty'. For an eloquent view of the city check out Robyn's New York Times piece here. I want to post a few images from our time in Mardin while I put together a larger gallery on Photoshelter.
