Milky Way Over Apples
Central Asia along with Iran-Turan region and Anatolia are the lands where apples originate. Turkmenistan leases land to people who agrees to cultivate the land for agricultural production. This land is an example. Saturn and the bulge of the Milky Way were visible above the growing apple saplings. My brother Cenk and I had spent a few days to work on a geological survey for groundwater around this farmland; which lies near Saywan, located in the highlands of Turkmenistan about 200 km west of Asghabad.
