Kurban Bayram starts today, Sapanca, Turkey

Being an outsider in this culture it's a bit hard to understand, but it does make me think about where meat actually comes from. "The feast of the sacrifice", the most important Islamic religious holiday, honors Abraham's near sacrifice of his son. Instead a goat or cow is now sacrificed and the meat is shared with friends and family and people who can't afford meat, These guys just said a prayer before the slaughter, this happens to be the cow our extended family will share everyone
