Patrick Fabian Photo from Peace Corps (T-9)
The old mosque in Kazancik Koyu, Hatay.
The village tore this mosque down to build a new one shortly after this
photo was taken. I rather liked the old minaret. I left before the new
mosque was finished but they were planning to build one of the sleeker
"rocket ship" style minarets to better compete with the village up the hill.
A note on the back of the photo indicates that the muhtar is second from
right. The woman is the grammar school teacher.
There was a lesson there somewhere about resources and
priorities, that was not really covered in our RCD training. --
