After we finished with Mor Gabriel, we caught a ride back to Midyat bus station and since it was quite early in the afternoon we decided we'll get a taxi to take us back to see the other churches and monasteries. We found this older guy doing nothing. I motioned to him that we want to go to Tur Abdin, he's to drive us around, show us at least 4 (dort) churches (kilesi) but not Mor Gabriel since we've already been there. We'll pay him 300Tl, I wrote it down for him. He looked at the map, thought hard, he asked 'dort' and 300TL? I said, 'taman'. (OK in Turkish). He said, 'taman' and off we went.
