Dogubayazit Things to Do: 41 reviews and 74 photos
There are local Kurdish people on top of the hill just outside the Ahmed-i-Hani turbesi. We had a brief interaction and they were so friendly and the kids are adorable. They loved to be taken pictures with tourists and they talk to you at least in their very limited english.
There are young boys - 3 of them (see pic) - in prince-like costumes and this one I would never miss cuz I've seen this in several Turkish movies. I was sitting with this old folk on the bench when these 3 kids in prince-like costume came in front of me and I told the old folk who is talking to me while I was resting that I know this - while motioning my index finger like slicing the tip --- READ: circumcision!
I remember first seeing it in the Greek/Turkish movie "A touch of Spice" or Politiki Kouzina (Greek title).
