I was searching around on the BBC archives and found this very interesting article about the Farmers of Kuskoy who whistle everyday as they go about their business.

It is quite incredible; it is more or less like another language as described by the journalist who wrote the article.

Anyone know of this? It does not say where the village. It would be interesting to hear if anyone has any personal experience!

I guess that is what you call "poetic Licence", using the picture I mean! When my mother used to call me, when I was swimming in the river (near my house) it was not as nice as your whistling I am sure!

So exactly where is Kuskoy as I could not find that much about it when I googled it?

Now that you told me you obviously have to show me when we meet again . Maybe I can start learning it next to Turkish, people already think I'm crazy for learning Turkish, so why not .
