Photographer's Note

Faces of Turkey - Number 3

At Tavan docks - these guys were clearing snow from the tracks so that the railway goods-wagons could be loaded on to the Lake Van ferry.
You can see them hard at work here.
Passenger trains also use the ferry, and the Trans-Asia Express from Istanbul to Tehran also crosses the lake in this way before crossing the Iranian border near Van.
One day I'd like to make that (60 hour!) trip - what a journey! Mind you, I spent 46 hours on the train from Istanbul to Tatvan...
