Turkey: Day Ten

Back in İstanbul today, and I recorded the daily spiel of the simit salesman as he walks around the streets of Kadiköy, advertising his business. A lot of people make their living on the street here - selling things and offering services to residents and tourists alike. The simit man skillfully balances a big pile of simit (sort of like a big Turkish bagel) on his head and calls out that he has them for sale, then for 1 Turkish lira (about 60 Australian cents) you can get some nice tasty bread as big as your head, covered in different types of seeds.

In this track there's also three loops of the ceramic bird whistle that I bought in Kapadokya, pitched down and with various delays and panning effects.
