This blog documents the ongoing road trip through the cross-cultural marriage of one American woman married to a Turkish man. Part of acculturating to her cross-cultural marriage included getting in touch with the Karagöz shadow puppets that took residence in the back seat of her head (and the car). Depending on the situation these puppets take on the roles of the yea-sayer, the naysayer, the devil, the angel, the manners expert, the feminist, the religious person and many more. Karagöz Oyunlerı, or the particularly Turkish art form of shadow puppetry, is famous for heightening stereotypes and truths about the nature of people, places and things in the way that only puppets can. What better country to use as the foil for a discussion on cross-cultural relationships than Turkey, a country at the brink of east and west.
