Basically, the whirling is a form of worship, a form of meditation. These men put themselves into trances while they dance and spin around without ever getting dizzy. And really, they don't get dizzy... they'll spin for what seems like ten hours and then will stop on a dime and just walk off the stage. Meanwhile, you feel dizzy watching them.
Now, if you've never tried to get a good photo of a whirling dervish... let me just tell you it's not easy. Because... see... they're WHIRLING
Let me know if you have any problems viewing the stuff, ok? Like I said, this is an experiment. I tried to take a bunch of videos and not make them too long. Didn't want it to take forever to view them.
Trying to update the other stuff about Egypt but I may have to do it in Turkey. I can't believe I'm leaving tomorrow. Even weirder... I can't believe I've still got so many weeks to go. It just seems crazy that I'm doing this. Yes, not just to you... to me too. ;)
