Folk Dancers
In the town of Urgup in
Cappadocia, we were treated
to "Turkish Nights."  Our
dinner was in an unusual
underground restaurant
recently carved from the lava
rock.  There was all kinds of
food and drink, but the real
excitement was over the folk
dancers and musicians.

The young men and women
were very good dancers and
wore many colorful
costumes.  They performed
folk dances from different
areas of Turkey.  One dance
was from the Black Sea area
and was very similar to
Russian folk dances.  There
was a belly dancer, but our
guide said it was a folk dance
similar to a belly dance. (I
said it was really similar, like
about the same.)
Nelson from our group was chosen to participate in a dance that includes eating food.
This dance involves clicking sticks.
