Word Travels - TURKEY - Road Trip into Genesis
TURKEY - Road Trip into Genesis
Genesis is the theme this week, as Robin and Julia head east to investigate a story about biblical tourism. Walking amongst ancient ruins, drinking from the well of the prophet Abraham's birth cave, they also reflect how much their own lives have changed since first meeting in Turkey several years ago. While Julia investigates a female-run cooking school, Robin's heads to Mount Nemrut, where massive 2000 year-old statues greet the sunrise every morning.
