Sandy Pfunder's Photo Album (1965-67) - 6
(ayırii Ky)

But for the passage of time, I'm not sure I would share these pictures with anybody.  My site partner, Allen Neill (Schauffler) and I are pictured in the village in typical working garb.  The village was ayırii Ky, located about 8 km. inland from the market town of Tonya, about 70 km. southwest of Trabzon, up in the mountains.  These may have been taken to reassure parents that we were alive and well.

This is how the villagers plowed their fields, using a hand-made device (called a "bel" in Turkish) that was a cross between a spade and a pitchfork.  The soil was too heavy for horse- or mule-drawn plows, and the terrain was too steep for tractors, so the plowing was done by hand.  When a village family first started to plow their fields, neighbors would gather to help out for a few hours.  After that first day, the family had to finish the job by themselves. 

My site partner, Allen Neill Schauffler, is third from the left in both pictures.  My landlord's son and his wife are at the right-hand end of the line.  The others are neighbors.
