With the cesspool emptier in The Grand Bazaar

Published October 12th, 2012

Visiting The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul I witnessed an event that seems fantastic for me, but it's daily business for the locals. As if there wasn't enough bustle in the bazaar, a cesspool emptier was trying to get to the destination, barely fitting through the narrow streets with shops and stalls on both sides. The shopkeepers didn't mind that, neither did the crowd. For the municipality employees it was just a normal workday.
