    Wow, some ‘rehearsal’! Loved the first group of Rockette-wannabees. Also the goose-stepper leading the flags, but not one group following could march in step. Tokat must be a large town to field so many schoolkids.
    I’ve followed you since before Turkey. Love, love virtual travel. Thank you for showing a place I’ll likely never see in person.

    Amazing that they just shut down the road for a “rehearsal”. I love seeing what everyone is wearing. We get so many videos showing only the covered women. Nice to see real life.
    I am not sure that those flip flops would flip or flop, but the concept is wonderful! We all think alike, even back to the Ottomans!
    And, I can just picture you all covered in the jingly stuff. As you run through the streets of Duluth.

  4. I don’t blame you at ALL for coveting the jingle jewels. I can totally see you hoarding it all up in your cave-house, singing to yourself as you admire your loot.

    The guy leading the flag bearers? A refugee from the Ministry of Funny Walks.

    I loved that first group of girl doing their routine — such precision. They could give lessons to later groups, who were clearly attempting to *march* but lacked any clear idea of what is means to keep in step. (former marching band member here)

    And I wish our politicians in Washington and Madison would do that same pledge every morning to engage with honest business.
