Getting There .....

My trip to kurdistan was awsome! I went to alot of places and enjoyed it very much. I would like to start this blog and put pictures and talk a little about my trip.


We left from Nashville to Chicago was about 120 minutes. It was my first time going to Chicago airpot. It was huge!! Alot bigger than stinking nashville airport.

The flight from Chicago to Istanbul was about 12hours. It took forever to get there. The plain was full of turks. There was only one Kurdish family with us from Minnesota.

We got to istanbul safely alhamdulila! A kurdish guy at the airport helped us with our luggage and took us to a hotle. The hotel was called "Madrid Hotel". The owner were turki kurds. They spoke some weird kurdi. I couldn't understand a word they were saying. One guy spoke english thank god.

We stayed in istanbul for 3 days. I enjoyed it very much. We went to Haja Safia musuem. It was so beautiful. I've never seen a mosque that big.

We went to a resturant to eat lunch. The food was so nasty. The guy was smoking and serving food at the same time. IT was so discusting!!!

Then we went to the shopping center. Ummmmmmmm they had cute clothes =) Shopped there for hours.

At night we were so tired but we still went out and just took a walk around the place.

The next day we went to Sultan Mehmet Musuem. It was kind of similar to haja sofia. But there was something special here. We went inside and saw Prophet Muhammad (s) sword and other things that blonged to prophet Muhammad (s). It was so amazing that they still have that in the musume!

The next day we packed our stuff and took the plane from Istanbul to Diyarbakr. It was about 2hrs. Diyarbakir's airport was very small. They didn't even have terminals! We had to come out of the plane on the stairs.

They they drove us from Diyarbakir to Zaxo. I hated it ! The turkish jerks made us stop in their checking stations so many times. It took us forever to get there.

Well i took a lot of pics in turkey and kurdistan. I'll just post them and have a little note of where they were taken =)

YOu are a bloody lier. those turkish "jerks" as you call them are protecting your people, every single day putting their own lives in danger. Without their protection, your own people would kill you. such a disgrace that you dare to call a part of Turkey as kurdistan. Kurds are always welcomed to live in Turkey as long as they appreciate that the turkish flag will be above their heads. they have no right to be in seperatist behavior.

I've been to Kurdistan- Irbil and Suleymaniyah. They are both nice places and the people are friendly, respectful, and I am very happy that they like Americans. I was part of the rescue of the Kurds in the early '90's, when so many fled to the mountains. I am sorry this happened to your people. I hope to return to Iraq and Kurdistan in my job. Thank you.

you stupid. I dont see any kurdish country on the world map. All those nice places you posted all belong to Turkey. Turkey is one of the beautiful country in the world. Also, its cuisine is one of the best in the world. Also, Turkish people known with their great hospitality in the world. Be respectful to the country that protect Kurdish people eventhough it losts its innicent people by kurdish terrorists.
