The market around the New Mosque was just closing up as we walked past, people were stil lingering and getting in a few last purchases while the vendors packed up at the end of what must have been a long day.
I'm still adjusting to the number of small markets that make up every neighborhood here in Istanbul. Don't get me wrong, they have large American style shopping malls to - but when I shop there I forget I'm some place new.
I prefer the little markets when I'm looking for an experience and not just a quick tube of toothpaste and I'm looking forward to discovering more of them now that the weather is getting better and the days longer.
I dare you to listen to the Lumineer's Ho Hey and not feel like singing along.
