Episode034: When you dance the night away

Hello!  Jason and I enjoyed a weekend with new friends out at the town of old Foça. We talk a little bit about it in the episode, but our main topic is all about Turkish weddings. Last weekend started the wedding festivities with some of our friends, Kaan and Melis, with their Kına Gecesi, or Henna Night. Then Thursday was the full day of wedding activities including the ‘Fetching of the Bride’, signing of the marriage documents, and the wedding party! Spoiler* There was LOTS of dancing.

Enjoy and have a great Monday!
