Humans of Kurdistan - East 23

August 5, 2020

“I got married in 1976. We celebrated for 5 days and 5 nights. It was like the whole world came to see our wedding. Blchasur is a village in the Komas region of Mariwan in Eastern Kurdistan, there wasnt space for a needle. Hama Mullah Darziani was our singer.
People were very poor at the time. I am surprised people say things are expensive now! People had one set of clothes they celebrated and mourned in. We were poor and that did not allow us to even wear one proper pair of shoes, but we were happy and healthy. It has now been 5 years that I suffer with my leg and it has taken my peace”.
