Perks of Being Tatar

Being Tatar has many benefits.  At the top of my list would be Tatar home cooking.  Tatars know how to cook and cook hearty, delicious foods.  It's not difficult to throw together a quick list of Tatar perks.  Today she served me up a plate of hot piruk, right from the oven.  (Piruk may technically be Russian, but we're not arguing).

Great Tatar Cuisine
Charming Tatar music
Rich literary culture - colourful language
Beautiful cities with historic architecture
Ancient and rich, unique history
A peaceful model of coexistence amid multi-ethnic population
Many Tatars are beautiful.  Pretty girls and handsome guys.
Tatars are friendly, generous, honest people.

Last visit, she made Peremech and Kebeste Belish.  With a hot tea and her Tatar mother's touch, life is good.
