Life with a parrot in Istanbul

Forty-three-year-old background actor Nazim Cihan’s parrot, Pasha, attracts people’s attention in Istanbul. Cihan, an Ottoman Empire enthusiast, wears Ottoman-style clothes in his daily life.

Cihan says that he bought Pasha three years ago upon a friend’s advice, and since then he has gone out with his parrot during his off days. He also mentions that he loves the attention he gets from people about his parrot. (Getty)
