Demonstration of traditional paper-making techniques

In late August the Turkish World Festival arrived at Navy Pier with cultural offerings from Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyszstan, and the Balkans.  There should have been a booth to help visitors pronounce the various countries, but we were happy to sample the food, dance, music and crafts from these exotic regions.   It’s not often can we experience Whirling Dervishes, Ottoman Military Bands,  and unique Central Asian cuisine all under one roof.   –go to chicago photo web site…
