Mardin, Turkey, Reservations Needed

Mardin is beautifully situated on a hill facing the Mesopotamian plane, across the Syrian border. To our astonishment, it has turned into a holiday destination for vacationing Istanbullus; it is in the middle of nowhere and exorbitant! We were amused when we went to dinner only to be turned away by the snobby and grumpy gay host. It took us a while to muster our royal calm and we realised we needed to transform back to "Non-backpacking Tom and Rena" (we can be King and Queen of the snobby and grumpy, so don't mess!). All in all its a great town for a day trip, but be sure to come emotionally prepared.
