Galata Bridge, teeming with aromas, sounds and sights

September 24, 2015

At the Galata Bridge it’s always lively.  So many sights and aromas, thousands of people, ferries, trams, cars, scooters.  Western dress, some women wearing scarves with western dress, in tradition attire.  No hijabs today.  Small groups of teen boys, few of teen girls.

Below, a small boat serves as a kitchen.  They make fish sandwhiches and pass them to the land.  The bones go in the water (not a good idea, as the decomposition removed the oxygen from the water)
