I didn’t know this but there are nomads just west of Mersin. The Yoruks go to the Mediteranean districts of Silifke, Gulnar and Aydincik in autumn and back to the plateaus of Karaman and Konya in spring. The numbers of nomads are dwindling as more succumb to the pressures of modern life and settle.
Investigating further, the range of the Yoruk people extends all the to Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Greece in the the Balkans.
Trivia: Yoruk is a brand of yoghurt here.
