Here is a very decorative page showing a map of Turkey in Europe, and various scenes depicting traditional life and scenery - including: a laden camel strutting amongst locals, a man carrying a huge weight whilst a tourist looks away, local people sitting in the streets with someone collecting water and a view across building tops with a setting sun in the distance.
