Coincidentally helping to build up a plantage and getting into a Kurdish family (May 2023)

My rush through Turkey continued and I reached a lake near the city of Batman. Not kidding, I went through it just because of the name which always reminds me of a Batman action figure my mother had glued some feather angel wings to the back and hung into a tree in our garden.

I just wanted to have a rest at this lake when a friendly guy came by and invited me to a barbeque. I accepted and had a funny meal with him and his friends supported by Google Translate.

After the meal I helped them building up their plantage and we had a lot of fun.

In the evening they insisted that I have to join them for dinner at the home of one of them. It was super nice and very interesting and traditional.

Welcome to the Teletubby-sustainability-garden (April 2023)

After the coast, I went to a very special garden: Umut’s garden.

At that little, colorful and vibrant place I met a lot of nice people and spent an awesome time with especially Amos, Sabriye, and Miquel. Together we planted, built, repaired, watered and had a lot of fun!

After spending such a good time with the talking circle community, it felt super nice to spend this  time at the garden with even more lovely people. I thought that maybe staying at a place like this and working directly in and with nature would be a nice thing to do.

We did so many funny and interesting things: Amos and I played around with the old clothes that were stored at that place and had such a silly time. Miquel and I did a huge minimization project: we took everything out of their camper, sorted it, reduced it and moved it back in. It was super fun. Who needs twelve different hammers?
