“I am 35 years old and I am from the Dape region in Alaziz. I have been working as a journalist in Istanbul for 10 years, but I have always thought of village work. I once met with some friends in Dersim who do agriculture. After that meeting, I had the idea of leaving journalism altogether and coming to live in the village.
When we are planting, we come to the field early, we work for a while and then eat breakfast. We take breaks because of the heat. During the breaks, some friends read books and others swim. That is how well we spend our days.”
