Melon vendors on Çimen Sokak


melon vendor 1000x735 This is their horse cart as seen from my fourth-floor apartment window on Çimen Sokak (Wild Grass Street) in the Ergenekon neighborhood of Istanbul. There is nary a blade of grass on Çimen Sokak. I like these guys better than the other melon vendors who use a pickup truck and a loudspeaker. Visit the previous post to hear these guys in action. The horse is silent. (Speaking of silent, there is a poster of Miles Davis in my apartment. Not that one, this one).
