Great shot ~ great title!
Thank you, Dalo.
Yes that’s the question
According to what I heard, beautiful Hasankeyf should be flooded soon…
…and they want to evacuate some of the historic buildings to an archeological park soon.
So I guess we have to expect the worst…
I would prefer renovation
You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs! 🙂
Certainly. But there are many eggs, but, sadly, only one Hasankeyf.
A good question and very applicable to my city.
Which is your city?
Christchurch, New Zealand
Hard to say!
Sadly, we have to expect the worst for beautiful Hasankeyf…
Dear Rabirius, many thanks för your sensitive soul
Hasankeyf really means a lot to me – and therefore post a picture of that place from time to time.
Thank you for your compliment!
To me the retaining walls indicate reconstruction. I certainly hope so!
As you look at my page frequently you will have probably noticed that Hasankeyf pops up here and there all the time – so the place really means a lot to me. For me it is somewhat magical and I’m always so happy when I’m there…
…but I think the dam will most certainly come – and then it will be the end of beautiful Hansakeyf’s thousands of years long history…
…but I’m still hoping!
I really really hope so too! It looks magical !
It IS magical…
If you haven’t read it already you might find this article interesting, http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/24/opinion/sunday/large-dams-just-arent-worth-the-cost.html?_r=0
I do hope they are renovating the site . . .
Thank you for the link. It is indeed interesting.
When you dig a bit deeper, you will quickly notice that building dams has a lot more disadvantages than advantages. After my article about Hasankeyf I got so much information about dams all over the world. I also posted an interesting video under the gallery, someone made me aware of. It compares Hasankeyf with a dam in Brazil.
Yes, lets hope they will only renovate!
