What’s more important than the loved ones?
∣Family Life in Turkey∣

 

 

土耳其人很重視家庭生活,親戚就住在三五分鐘之遙的距離,像我們高雄的家人一樣。大家整天就互相拜訪,一起看電視,嗑土耳其瓜子,吃巨無霸水果盤。每次家庭聚會都很像在過年。

Family life is above everything in Turkey. Relatives live close to each other, reminding me of mine in Kaohsiung. They visit each other almost every day, watching TV together, eating sunflower seeds and enjoying the jumbo plate of fruit in Turkish style. Every time I sat among them, I felt as if I was celebrating Chinese New Year.

Emine的家人大概是我見過關係最緊密的家庭了,完全不吝於表露情感。擁抱,親吻,一天不下數十次。看他們抱在一起,沐浴在冬日午後陽光下,十分動人。我想我也該更常採取實際行動才是(張芷淳你給我好好練習)。

Emine has a very intimate family, not shy about expressing love to each other at all. They hug and kiss probably a million times in just one day. Sometimes I would just sit there and watch them holding each other in their arms, basking in the winter sun. I am sure this would be the most moving moment in my Turkish memory.
