The Village- Kayakent

When you are leaving somewhere, there are many things that need to be done, but I think that the worse thing is saying goodbye to people. This past weekend we said a lot of goodbyes to Seyfi's family.

We decided to drive to Seyfi's parent's village to say goodbye to Seyfi's aunts, uncles and cousins.

Seyfi's village, is a wonderful example of a traditional Anatolian village. There are covered women in their gardens looking after the gardens, men tending to their sheep as they lead them to and from the fields and children running around playing with each other regardless of their ages.

I love going to the village, it is so quiet there, you can hear the birds chirping, and the sheep bahhing. It never feels too hot there, and the food is always very delicious. I saw the biggest snail just crawling along.

This was the first time that Alara has been there, and she loved it, She could run around and play with the other children, and made friends, she picked cherries right off the tree and ate them, she ate watermelon and got all dirty. What more could a kid want?
