Summary
For centuries a crossroad between East and West, Turkey is now struggling with modernizing the country. Some see it as further aligning itself with the West, while others want to go back to the old Islamic rules. In this episode, we travel from the border with Syria to Ankara, Istanbul, and Kapikule on the border with Greece. Along the way, travelers demonstrate the typical warmth of the Turks, but they also talk with frustration of their wish to join the EU, entering Europe with or without the veil, and how to deal with minority populations. Part of the series In 80 Trains Around the World .
