It is Ramadan right now in Istanbul. Iftar (breaking the fast) is a religious observance and it happens at the evening call to prayer. The fasting during this month lasts all day; no food, no water. When that evening call to prayer comes, people come together as a community to break the fast (Iftar). So as you watch the small video below, try to imagine families and friends getting together after a long day with no food or drink to enjoy a good meal.
Really nice post and video. I should try to visit Istanbul during Ramadan.
Thanks! And if you are thinking of visiting Istanbul, there is no better time then Spring… just lovely!
