Today I had the chance to visit Ulus, the old part of our city. I took this video as we walked up one of the main streets. It is quite bumpy so if you tend to get motion sickness from watching videos beware! You can hear the call to prayer being broadcast from a nearby mosque. As you can see there are quite a variety of things for sale on this street. Also you can see the difference in women's fashions. Some women are covered, and some are wearing tight jeans and shirts. The 4 American women I am with are wearing pink, pink, brown, and turquoise shirts. Just so you don't identify them as Turkish!
