Around turkish Mesopotamia

Mesopotamia is the place where the history of civilization began to be written. From its belly the first city was born, Uruk. Mesopotamia is a fascinating land, rich in natural resources and sad events that have always followed due to its importance. Today it is the center of an immense dispute, which sees politics and governments clash. Theater of blood and wars. The Turkish section of Mesopotamia encounters marvelous and very old lands, in which today, between political clashes aimed at claiming its property, a spirit of wisdom survives and unites different peoples.
