“My whole family lives in Adana, North of Kurdistan, but I came to West of Kurdistan as a kid and settled in here in this neighborhood. I got married and had kids, but 15 years ago my husband passed away, and I had to be responsible for everything. Once my kids grew up, they left to outside of the country and only five of them have stayed here with me. I have visited them several times in Germany and Cyprus, and thankfully they live very well. My oldest daughter lives in Germany, she always pushes me to go and live with her, but I can never live away from my home for four months. I sit down in front of my house everyday and whoever passes says hi. In the evenings, the women from my neighborhood gather around and we talk. Many people call me chief of the neighborhood because I know most of the people who pass through here.”
