I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. For one thing, the driver spoke no English. Only Turkish and Arabic. This annoyed me on the way to the border because I realised he'd be of little help to me if something went wrong. So we communicated in a mish-mash of Arabic and Turkish until we reached the border.
