...Peaceful moment...

Today I am posting a photo that we took when visiting our auntie (it is a must to go and see elder people when one visits Sheki, you can of course not visit but that would show disrespect and would upset the elder)...

This photo was taken when there was a moment of peace and my son actually sat for couple of minutes (this happens quite rarely since children as you know have "energiser batteries" that never finish...God bless...)

What might be interesting for you on the photo is the mattress that I am sitting on (every family in Sheki has mattresses like this. They are meant to be put on the floor for leisure times). See also "mutekke" kind of a pillow that has a shape that you see...This is for leaning purposes also for leisure times...I don't know if you agree with me but although everything is so simple in the room it brings peace and comfort...this is how I felt there...

It is very rare that people would sit now on the floor in Azerbaijan and have meals for example as it used to be before...but for leisure purposes there are always comfortable mattress and "mutekke" waiting for you in every house in Sheki...:)
