Today, we went to visit my grandmother up in the village called "Geyikbayiri". They've lived in the same house for years. My mother grew up here.

What a beautiful view from your grandmother's village. Seems like an interesting place and keeps your grandmother busy. Impressed by the bread-making. It's very hard to maintain a consistent heat with a wood stove. Looks like you guys are having fun

The Stove
Hey Rawn, Thank you for your nice words. I'm impressed by the stove as well. They used to make the bread on a smaller stove. Apparently, this place is really popular so they have to make hundreds of thousands of breads daily. Someone came up with this idea. It's really a oversized wood-stove. There's a person who takes care of the heat consistency by adding wood or removing them. Also the women know what they are doing. Yeah we are having so much fun. Eating a lot by the way. Hope to see you soon.
