So I was up super early in Istanbul. Before the first call to prayer a woman had stabbed a man across the street from my hotel. I woke up to screaming; particularly her screaming at him. From the lack of urgency that I saw in the police this seemed to be a common occurrence. So when it all finally calmed down I went back to sleep. Then over ALL the loudspeakers in the city was the first call to prayer. There was no way I was going back to sleep so I grabbed my gear and headed out into the darkness and eventually wound up in the Blue Mosque courtyard.
