Home Sweet Home
Just a quick note to say we are back in Paris after an exhausting but wonderful week of interviews with Kurds, Turks, Arabs, and Assyrian Christians; bumpy rides on minibuses and leisurely walks through ancient cities; little sleep and much talking; and many, many cups of tea.
It's been an intense trip because we had so little time - we even skipped Istanbul to concentrate on remote south-eastern Turkey - but I hope to travel to the region again later this year.
I'll be publishing some posts on my favourite moments, and a lot of the material will find its way into my novel, "The Registrar's Manual for Detecting Forced Marriages."
