The One About Iskenderun

According to Indiana Jones, Marcus Brody, who is fluent in more than 12 languages, has just slipped out of the train station in Iskenderun and was trying to find his way. He looked desperate until he finally met with Sallah, who was fluent in English.

The pure classic “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” is, it is also a perfect storyline describing the framework of an adventure out there.

The good guys in the face of Indiana Jones and his father, Sallah and a few minor characters. All of them trying to preserve the legend while looking for the holy grail and making sure it ends up in the right hands.

The charming Dr Elsa Schneider is so determined to get what she wants that she first denies Indiana’s kisses, but then manages to spin his head off. There is Vogel – the evil Nazi dude who was probably born without even a touch of humanity. The super-rich Walter Donovan wants to live forever and sees the holy grail as a real thing.

In Iskenderun, the good takes on the bad and eventually wins. Just like in real life, right?
– You need an army, you gift a king latest model of a supercar, and he pays you back with a tank, soldiers and logistics.
– You need just a horse and a few camels to be able to successfully overcome that very cavalcade mentioned above.
– You get to be the chosen one, but not before someone shits on your parade and make things even harder.

The rest is pretty much as you know it – ups and downs with a happy end. Interpretations could be different, but the framework is the same. Just like in Iskenderun. How could one not believe in the prevailing of the good?
