Turkish Daylights: Night time sales
Before wishing you all a good night, I need to share what I saw on my way home this evening:
There were pillows and blankets piled up on the pavement. Lots of them. Illuminated by a spotlight, advertised by a short black haired guy and surrounded by curious by-passers. Buyruuuuuuuun! Buy and run? Not quite. Buyurun is a typical sales shout-out, a way to greet and attract potential clients and to request them to have a look.
Even though street vendors are quite common in Turkey, I had not come across such a kind of night time sales action yet, at least not in my street. I am curious to see if the vendor will still be at that same spot tomorrow or if he will have moved on to somewhere else.
Ok, I guess it’s time to snuggle into my own pillow and blanket now. Sweet dreams, everyone.
