I got out of Mardin in good time, making a good days cycling towards Hasankeyf. The road was hilly and beautiful – the hills are taking less of a toll these days, my fitness now is better than ever. I got to Midyat and took a half built road heading north. I was stopped by a group of curious Kurds who were fixing a digger – they were very loud and full of laughs, demanding me to take their picture with the bicycle which I happily obliged.

I came over a high pass and enjoyed a nice downhill into the Batman valley, and camped up among some trees. Good day.
