8/50.- Istanbul, Syrup seller


Outside the Hagia Sophia you will see probably more than one syrup seller, dressed in Ottoman traditional costumes of street vendors who will invite you to take a photo or two with him and buy a glass of sour cherry syrup. The custom of street vendors and cry seller of medieval times and Imperial days did not die entirely in Istanbul; you can still see simit (bagel with sesame seed) sellers, shoe shiners, used iron collectors crying their trade especially in the old part of the city.
