Gagauz Tales - Kongaz

A curious thing about the oral tradition is that there are often names that appear as protagonists for different stories and you keep hearing about them in diverse situations. In Gagauzia, this character is Kül Pepeleșkusu (a guy who played with ashes).

Ikizli Ekaterina Nikolaevna, a wonderful woman from Kongaz, shared with us one of the stories about this character.
