Every year since 1640 Turkey’s best wrestlers – men and boys – have gathered for their national championships on a grassy field near the capitol of the old Ottoman Empire (Edirne). The tournament is called “Kirkpinar,” or “Forty Springs,” in honor of a 17th Century wrestling  legend.Nearly 1,000 barefoot athletes compete, oiled up and stripped to the waist. The all-out style and the oiled trunks go back to the world-famous Janissaries, an elite fraternity of body guards to the Imperial Sultans. The modern stadium is located on the former site of the Sultan’s palace, and Turkey’s president crowns the champions.For three days the field is crowded with simultaneous matches in eleven divisions, ranging from school kids to forty-year-old masters. The sun is hot, but the fights are long.(Source)

Earlier , we've made a post about A Turkish Wrestler bringing a suit against British photographer Terry George. For this post we've gotten some accusing comments and e-mails for betraying our traditional/national sport and introducing the Turkish wrestlers as gay people to the world! Well all we tried to say was this is an "eye-candy sport" for gay men. Just look at these pictures and tell us we're wrong!

A Little Bit of Freedom

Baran (Cagdas Bozkurt) is a Kurdish boy from Turkey whose relatives have helped him to come to Germany after the death of his parents. His asylum application was rejected just shy of his sixteenth birthday. No stranger to hard work, he survives by running errands for a Turkish fast-food restaurant, which take him from the finest apartments to the lowest clip joints - confronting him with the district’s many realities.
Not until Baran encounters the seventeen-year old Chernor(Leroy Delmor)- also an illegal and stateless immigrant – does his life gain impetus. The two are drawn together. But while Chernor tries to finance his future by dealing drugs, Baran’s past catches up with him…


Kleine Freiheit/A Little Bit of Freedom(2003) is a very good and a touching movie about two young illegal immigrant boys. It's a very catchy plot and makes you think a lot even after it ended. Besides Cagdas and Leroy are hot as hell. During the film you always want to see them both naked and in same bed...well they don't let you down ;)

Highly Recommended...

The nicest thing on the way to Istanbul!!


Recently we've mentioned about how bad our trip from Antalya to Istanbul well there were few good things also...In a place near Istanbul the bus stopped for some rest and we saw that gorgeous waiter who brought us some drinks ; we still had our camera in our back-pack so we decided to take some photos of him.  He seems very HOT and innocent. If one of us had any connections with George Duroy , we'd love to call him and offer that waiter for "Frisky Summer 5 : Waiter"(lol)

Just because of him we had tons of liquid :))
