Success! We made it all the way to eastern Turkey and delivered the goods – hundreds of blankets, baby food, warm winter clothes and other items donated by kind people (mainly Kurdish) people in Antalya.
The team: Selchuk, who kindly navigated and translated for us, Priscilla from Germany (Jesus Freaks) and me.
We were a little worried about getting mobbed like some other trucks here. But they had set up a distribution center so it was much more organized and less anarchic than we feared.
After the delivery, we got a little lost. Many roads were blocked off and we ended up driving through the most devastated areas including the city of Ercis.
