Just outside the Topkapi Palace\u2026.\n\nA shoe shine man with a glamorous set up!\n\nThis was not just a scene of a service provider and a customer. It was a scene of two men chatting in a very bonded way.I wonder what they are talking about. Politics? Social Issues? Or about the strange tourists who stop and stare at everything?\n\u00a0\n\nAlongside their discussions, the shoes are also getting worked upon!\n\u00a0\n\nThese shoe shine men are everywhere in Istanbul!\n\nSuch quaint shoe shine set-ups I have never seen before \u2026\nAnd isn\u2019t that the purpose of travel? To see lifetsyles we have not seen before?\n\u00a0\njm\nJuly 2015\nThe post Interesting Istanbul 2 \u2013 The Shoe Shine Men appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
