Hitch-hiking from Mardin to Tatvan I made a short stop in the ancient (3000 years old) settlement of Hasankeyf. When we drove into the little village my Iraqi driver motioned that he was stopping to go to the hairdresser and whether it was a problem for me to wait. Passing up on the funny story of going to the hairdresser while hitch-hiking I opted for a cup of coffee and a chat with the personnel of the cafe about the plans to build a dam and artificial lake; which will flood the area and destroy part of this world heritage site.
