Istanbul. June, 2007

How quiet Taksim Square looks in this photo from six years ago. This is the same square that’s currently ground zero for the protests now shaking Istanbul, all of Turkey actually. East meets West here, too. Burger King on the right with its hamburgers and upstairs roof terrace. And Kosem Bufe right next to it with its own Turkish-style burgers in big rolls, soggy and warm in their steam-cabinet displays. Today, a different scene.
