‘Watchtower of Turkey’: a Fast-Paced 20-Day Journey Across the Country [VIDEO]
What starts off as a somewhat creepy video quickly turns into a vibrant and chaotic journey across Turkey. Directed by Italian photographer Leondard Delassandri, “Watchtower of Turkey” captures the Eurasian country over a 20-day, 3,500-kilometer trek. The fast-paced video brings the essence of the country to Delassandri’s viewers, showcasing many sensational places and landscapes, people and food. On the video’s Vimeo page, Delassandri writes:
I’ve crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people [with] their smiles and their hospitality. This is Turkey lived by me from north to south, and I hope you enjoy it.
