Sandy Pfunder's Photo Album (1975)
Three village children starting up side street from the main
village road (Spring, 1975)
After Margaret and I visited the village in 1975, we returned to Trabzon.
The next day we planned to fly to Izmir. When we arrived at the Trabzon
airport, we were surprised to be met by a very good friend, Selahattin
Karagüzel (on the right), who came to see us off.
One Peace Corps volunteer on a return visit in 1975 (front row) surrounded
by old friends. Hasan Şahin, who was one of our
hosts in 1999 and again in 2002, is in the center of the back row (with
sunglasses). The village bekçi, now school bus
driver, Ali Yamaç, stands behind him.
In the mid-sixties, lumber trucks like this one bringing logs down from the
forests at the edge of the yayla were about the only means of
transportation, other than walking. There usually wasn't room going
downhill, but when the trucks returned empty, you could often get a ride.
