San Francisco Sabantuy 1976

Fuat Sadri of Kobe Japan uses a baseball bat at San Francisco Sabantuy 1976.  This is at Searsville Lake which is in the hills above the Silicon Valley.  The gentleman on the right, pointing down is Tahir Devletsah, born in Korea.  These are all Tatars that comfortably spoke the Tatar language.  They are both deceased.

Halime in Japan

Halime Sadri (Ebe) is in black. We don't know who the cat is nor the other individuals. Tatars that lived in Japan were influenced by Japanese culture. They put soy sauce on their peremech, piroshki and into their chicken broth. They enjoyed photography as enthusiastically as their Japanese neighbors and absorbed their affinity for cuteness. Animals appear in many photographs from the Tatar Japanese experience.  In those animal photos often someone is holding a puppy or expressing a certain Japanese tenderness.  They dressed well.
