A seriously ghostly sound like lamenting spirits

From the emails: a traveler's description of Izmir, Turkey
I was up a lot during the night.  S. couldn't sleep and she heard the Muslim call to prayer coming through the windows.  It was very eerie.  It didn't sound like a call to prayer resonating through the empty streets.  It had a seriously ghostly sound like lamenting spirits.  I don't think the city sleeps, though.  Even the fruit markets below R's apartment are open 24 hours.  All the food places, including McDonald's and Burger King, deliver.
