Ten month old twins live next door. The women carry them on their backs throughout the day to keep them happy. They have a neat way of wrapping a long strip of sheet around them.
This adorable little two year old was rocked to sleep in this makeshift cradle. We call it a beshik. They don't generally give their children a gentle rock, but rather a fast and rough swing. The babes are used to it and actually prefer it over the western method.
Grandma is playing with the children here in a little tent.
We happen to have a very small yard. I'm am so thankful for this. For years we lived in high rise apartments with only a small balcony.
