My Tajik Friend

There are wonderful people who inhabit the remote regions of Turkey. Without Khurshed I may not have found the Hittite fortifications and magnificent rock reliefs. Khurshed immigrated to Turkey about a year ago. He left a wife and two children and now sends money back to them in Tajikistan. We sometimes fail to realize how many people are living in desperate conditions and are forced to make tough choices. Khurshed speaks no English, but he made it a point to indicate that his home and his heart are in Tajikistan.
