Who is this guy holding my sister?
We just asked to take his hat for a photo! He did not accept at the beginning. Then he saw my sister and in exchange of a photo with my sister, he accepted to give his hat. Do you know who he is? We don't know even his first name! Anyway, it was new year eve, so everything could have happened :P
Keep your eyes open.........
....for tradesmen plying trades one no longer sees in many countries.
I saw stevedores in the Spice Bazaar, bent double under their huge loads as they negotiated the narrow, crowded alleyways.
I saw a travelling knife-grinder grinding the knives for restuarants.
In and around the Grand Bazaar I saw porters pulling huge loads on their trolleys.
All made me realise I was no longer in my own culture. Which is very good indeed.

That´s me in the pic. I´m setting in the ORIENT EXPRESS Station. Perhaps is not important for you,
but i´ve read many times Agatha Christie and her famous novel, so it was wonderful going there.
Inside there is a restaurant full of pics from the
film based on the novel......Yes, you can tell me nostalgic!!
It is well known for its jewelry, pottery, spice, and carpet shops. Many of the stalls in the bazaar are grouped by type of goods, with special areas for leather coats, gold jewelry and the like.
Here the most valuable items and antiques were to be found in the past, and still are today, including copperware, amber prayer beads, inlaid weapons, icons, mother-of-pearl mirrors, water pipes, walking sticks, watches and clocks, candlesticks, old coins, and silver and gold jewelry set with coral and turquoise.
