Village Wedding 3: A Backstage Tea Break

Turkish Tea Backstage, originally uploaded by Josh and Julie.

Huseyin Amja (Uncle Huseyin) is Eren’s grandfather. 76 years old, he is still going strong and able to dance the kaşık oyunu with the best of them. But age does have a way of catching up with you, I suppose. While the younger boys were getting the dancing started in the schoolyard on Saturday afternoon, Huseyin Amja was inside having a quick glass of Turkish tea. On the table in front of him, a handmade acoustic saz and a bag of extra wooden spoons wait to be pressed into service when the dancing heats up later in the evening.
