A TURKISH NEW YEAR’S EVE

We said good-by to the old year and all its sadness,  and hello to a happier New Year Turkish style.

Our good friends and neighbors  invited us to share this special night with them.

Dancing, laughing, eating, music, a magical evening.

The haunting sound of  the baglama  (a Turkish stringed instrument) beckoned us to sit,  enjoy,  listen and travel to a distant place.

Ancient Turkey, the Ottoman  Era, the Byzantium Empire,  Constantinople, it  was there in every note  being played.

We left,  stood under a sky brilliant with stars ,  and  greeted the New Year’s  to the sound   of music old as time itself.

Happy New Year Turkish Style!
