Picnic behind barbed wires (تبریز)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Turkish speaking population of Tabriz are very contended with the limited resources the semi-barren geography of the region has left at their disposal. Every Friday morning many would walk the Eynaly mountain at the north-east extremity to enjoy the relatively cleaner breezes and watch the ever growing jungle of high rise buildings on the flat arid plateau. Generally, the brief picnic would end by drinking few cups of tea that has been brewed on a smoking fire. Making fire is a challenge as the scanty vegetation consists of trees that have been planted in recent years and are jealously guarded behind barbed wires. However, the crowds enjoy the challenge as a pleasant part of the weekly ritual.

A little dangerous this ritual on Fridays with the few trees so close did I not. I say this because in my environment there are many and any small fire is a major hazard, a simple change of wind direction can be the trigger for a major disaster, so we are forbidden to do so without permission. Nice setting where we show and very good documentation on this tradition that Turkish. Best regards.
