The picture above was taken on the tram on the way to work one morning. The bread is called simit, and is a cross between a bagel and a pretzel. The boy selling these balanced the tray on the seat in front of me. He managed to sell quite a few before he reached his stop as the freshly baked simit smell filled the tram. The sun light that morning was warm and clear as our tram sped along the shores of the Bosphorus.
