poplar trees? What is the altitude here? very beautiful area. Also, are those apricot trees mixed in there on the hillsides? I read about the area in "Three cups of tea." Beautiful country!

here is a link (copy and paste into your browser)to an online distributor, and the information on the book. It is a truly great account of a man who has grasped an understanding of the local people, and has earned their respect. It is a great read.

I am not sure if amazon.com will ship to your country. If you have trouble obtaining a copy, send me a message, and I will try to find a way to get a copy to you.
