Friendship from a common cause

Friendship from a common cause
By Euronews

<p>Architect Onur Karahan is one of our protagonists. He has always had a passion for archaeology, ever since he was a child, but he thought it would be more productive to follow his other passion, architecture. </p> <p>Then one day he met Ahmet Yaras, and his life changed.</p> <p>Onur tells us how his life on an archaeological dig, at the age of 19, was not at all dry and intellectual. </p> <p>“There were three things that I liked to do in the evening. There was a round Roman swimming pool full of water and we used to go in along with Mehmet Agabey and my friends with some wine without the teacher knowing.</p> <p>Everyone who worked there came from different parts of Turkey. But we all had the same goal, to prevent the destruction of our cultural heritage.”</p>
