You better hope you’re able to whistle if you’re born and raised in this village in Turkey!
The villagers living in the high mountains whistle to each other when they are hundreds of meters apart to communicate. How cool is that? Well, we have mobile phones in the city and so do they, but I suppose reception may be poor and whistling costs NOTHING!
Here’s the video I chanced upon today. This is proper tweeting!
