I first visited the Kurds in 1997, and since 2001 I have returned annually to the region. Although I had previously visited all of the countries that include portions of geographic Kurdistan, I thought it important to travel throughout Kurdistan in a single travel. So from August through October, 2008 I traveled through western Iran, Armenia, Georgia, eastern Turkey, Iraqi Kurdistan, and northern Syria. The insights gained from such an immersion were deep, the pleasures immeasurable.
