"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

VIDEO: Dance Parties In The Rain | Bringing In The New Year, Kurdish Style

Posted in Videos, Videos By Me by matt on Sunday, January 8, 2012


Well it’s only a week late, but here’s a short video Cayla and I put together from our time wandering the streets together on New Year’s Eve.

Clustered parties lined one of our city’s main drags for the last 6 hours of 2011. I’m always surprised at how furiously Kurds will celebrate the holidays of others, and this was no exception. Their cultural new year isn’t until March, but thousands of people still partied, ate and danced the year away.

It was an excellent ending to an excellent year.
