comment Crossing from Georgia into Turkey
@Jonik The Wikipedia information is correct. However, Posof is both district and the town about 15km from the border. Officially, you cross at the Türkgözü border post, but you would say to someone that you crossed at Posof, since that is the largest settlement in the area. This situation is the same for most other Turkish border posts: Kilis/Öncüpınar, Silopi/Habur, Hopa/Sarp, etc.

comment How can I get two separate receipts when booking two flight tickets online?
@Joe I understand how it's far from the ideal solution! I was actually speaking from experience as I had to do something similar to a friend who was getting deported (long story!).

I thought that the majority of people in Jammu and Ladakh were not considered to "Kashmiri" by ethnicity or language. If that is not the common usage, then it is my mistake!

Also, Gilgit, Baltistan and the other Northern Areas are not populated by Kashmiris.

@AnkurBanerjee I thought the Indian Kashmiris (and not everyone in Jammu & Kashmir is Kashmiri of course) almost universally want either independence or to be part of Pakistan. Is that incorrect?

comment When is the last / overnight bus from Ankara to Goreme (Cappadocia)?
Istanbul buses don't usually stop in Ankara unless they are going very long distance, but it's certainly possible.

Out of curiosity, does the route start in Ankara or is it coming from elsewhere?

comment What are the hours of operation of the Ankara Metro?
The times of departure are different depending on the direction. These times are only for a single direction for each line.
