Remembering Amon's toothless smile
"I love colors and I love animals!"exclaimed Amon as I sauntered into his shop. It was my first night in the Mediterranean city of Antalya, Turkey, where cobblestone streets give way to soaring Roman ruins and jovial shop owners, like Amon, greet passersby with warmth and enthusiasm. But unlike Istanbul
, where everyone is a salesperson, in Antalya the mountains and the Mediterranean seemingly slow down everyone's way of life and it becomes more about conversation and humanity.
