The Rhodope grandmothers

These are women who live in the Rhodope Mountains and are from a village in which they firmly believe in Islam. They are Bulgarian but believe in Allah and live in a Christian country. There has never been tension between Christians and the Muslim minority. They are kind and good and even in my opinion more real people than us Christians.
