A Few Random Videos

Here are some more videos, held back due to Turkey’s odd restrictions on people using the internet in their country.

This video is what Christina calls the ‘Human Teapot’.  We found him wandering the big old bazaar in Istanbul.  In the heat of the summer he was serving up a cold sour cherry drink which was delicious enough for us to order a second after tasting it the first time.  In fact, he seemed to be quite popular with everyone in the market on that hot summer day!

This next video is a quick one I took of a Turkish baker rolling out some thin pastry breads.

This last video is an interesting video of a Turkish man running through his prayer beads, or worry beads.  He was standing and watching some traditional music and dancing.  You can tell by his smooth action that he has been doing this for many years.  Watch him flip them over when he feels that he’s reached the end.  Worry beads are very popular with older men in Turkey, who seemingly have to have something in their hands at all times!
