Photographer's Note

Winter time is cafe time. Specially in Anatolian countryside, where men has nothing to do untill next spring; where they will again start to work either on their fields or in the excavations of Aphrodisias (as it's in this case) or in any kind of contsruction works; they spent much of their time in cafe houses. Nipping their tea, smoking their cigarettes or playing different card games. One of the most popular and typical games of this "men's world" is backgammon.

Kış ayları, kahvehane aylarıdır Anadolunun pek šok y÷resinde.
Erkekler bir dahaki ilkbahara kadar yapacak fazla birşeyleri olmadığından, vakitlerinin šoğunu, kahvehane k÷şelerinde geširirler Anadoluda.
Kahveler, šaylar, ada šayları išilir. Sigaralar yakılır (yasağa rağmen hala išilen yerler var), OK, tavla, domino masaları kurulur.
Bu arada en šok konuşulan konu da "n'olacak bu memleketin hali" konusudur !
