Turkey: Day Five

Arrived in Kapadokya this morning after a 6am flight and had a little nap. I was woken by the midday Azan (call to prayer), which is performed live here (as opposed to the pre-recorded versions I've been hearing around ─░stanbul), and was extra long because it's Friday (the holy day in Islam). I believe it's not good manners to record the actual Azan but when it was finished someone had left the microphone switched on so I recorded the (very loud from my hostel room!) sound of one of the mosque window shutters, amplified and banging in the breeze. There's some birds in there too, plus popcorn vendor from yesterday, and six pitched down loops of tram bells from ─░stanbul.
