....I can not talk about the cities you have been to but I would like to add something about Rome: this town has many small squares, the are interrelated and people use these spaces to meet and communicate, but this is different in Istanbul. People meet in coffee houses, which are semi-private places, there they even talk to strangers very quickly, but in a real public space they would not communicate that much as they don't have the habit to do so, they keep much more at a distance...
