The Men of Margara: Playing Cards, not Politics, is the Favorite Pastime

The men of Margara, a village some 500 meters from the Turkish border, wait patiently for the sun’s rays to shine so they can play cards on a small table they’ve placed outside the mayor’s office.

The village has no functioning cultural center, even though the large building is a reminder that the village once had a vibrant cultural life.

The building itself is in bad shape. There are no windows and there are practically no traces of the former roof.

When we visited Margara, we encountered a group of men playing cards. Across the street were some others who told us about their youth during the Soviet period.
