Τα περιστέρια των ευχών | Yeni Caminin Güvercinleri

Yeni Caminin Güvercinleri
Ο θρύλος λέει ότι αν ταΐσεις τα περιστέρια που βρίσκονται έξω από το Yeni Cami (Γενί Καμί - Νέο Τζαμί) της Κωνσταντινούπολης, αυτά θα πραγματοποιήσουν την ευχή σου...

Yeni Caminin Güvercinleri
Έτσι, λοιπόν, έξω από το τζαμί υπάρχουν δεκάδες πλανώδιοι που πουλάνε σπόρους....

[ENG] According to the legend, if you feed the pigeons that are outside the Yeni Camii (New Mosque) of Constantinople (today Istanbul, Turkey), they make your wish come true... That is why outside the mosque there are many vagabonds selling seeds...

Beautiful Pictures! Also, the sign above the seed-seller's booth says that he's sanctioned by the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce. Funny- I'm from New York, I wonder what would happen if the mayor here would set up booths in the city to feed the pigeons.
