in villages high above Yahyalı : a group of tough boys with flowers

It was a Sunday ; we met them not far from the waterfalls. They were begging to be taken in photos and I begged them to take "interesting poses", if possible without smiling.

 

Some of them succeeded better than the others... Later on, we were told by the family of one of them that there were many "Turcomen" in this area, hence some slanted eyes seen here - but they were unable to tell me when their ancestors moved to Anatolia, "a very long time ago".
