Erkan at 15 ©2007 by Trici Venola. Hasankeyf, Eastern Turkey. Erkan took my friend Buket and me all over Hasankeyf, refused a tip, and invited us for supper with his mother. He was sad to think of leaving his home where his family has lived for hundreds of years. Hasankeyf is slated to be demolished for a dam. I was there to protest this. I still protest this.
