When I was holed up at Diyarbakir AB, Turkey ("D-Town"; "Dicky Baker") for 18 glorious months in the mid 90's, there was an little podunk AFS northwest of town called Pirinclik. Only the locals and folks from Incirlik prolly knew about it. It's nick was "Bedrock", cause drivin' thru the village was like seein' the Flintstones come to life. :)
