This young girl was stitting on a matt with a bag of safety match boxes and a plastic container for change in the middle of the main drag near Taksim Square in Istanbul. See seemed to be left there, and didn't really know what she was supposed to do. While a few people put change in her container and took a box of matches out of her bag, at this moment a street sweeper and musician stopped and began tried to talk with her.

Location: Istanbul Turkey
