the time I caught a taxi across the Syrian/Turkish border


Date: Jan 2009

This was the incredible taxi driver who managed to weave in and out of the 2km (no joke) queue  of trucks at the Syrian/Turkish border crossing, in the tinniest car in the world (think SmartCar tiny). As you can see, road rules in this part of the world are what we call flexible or ‘more like guidelines’. Anyway, this driver was a lovely guy who bought my friends and me bananas at a road stop and most importantly, got us through safely to the other side.
