This isn't a sight to behold but just so you know how the town of Hasankeyf looks like, the pictures is taken along the main road or highway of the town.
Buses that ply through the Mardin-Midyat-Hasankeyf-Batman route passes by here.
I brought in some cash enough to pay for my accommodation, food and miscellaneous expenses as I thought maybe there’s no place to draw cash from.
Again, I’m wrong.
A small town like Hasankeyf has about 3 ATM machines from different banks (AK Bank, Halk Bank, and I forgot the other one) all beside each other along the main Ataturk Cadessi right at the town center almost in front of the PTT and the municipal building.
So now you know if you run out of cash, you can always withdraw money from the ATM machines at the town centre. As long as your ATM, debit or credit card has the Maestro, Visa, Cirrus or any other international logo, it will work here.
Hasankeyf is a small town that looks like out of reach of advance technology – I was wrong.
I have seen about 3 or 4 internet café right at the center of the town along the main Ataturk Caddesi. One is Odak Intenet *& Café, the other one which I won’t forget is Lemon.
So, if you don’t have your laptop with you, you can use the desktops of any of these internet cafes either to surf the net or upload/transfer your photos.
if the building of dam go ahead,only hasankeyf's castle will stand above water level,but experts believe the pressure of water will cause even that to collapse.
nevertheless,a HOPE:common report says british and german governments could renounce to give money for financing dam!?
Fondest memory: the upper part of the mountain , citadel and very few inhabited caves:if ilisu dam is built,it's just what will remain from the past of hasankeyf!
