I really like the tweeter's caption.  It's charming.

There is no description of the photo's location. Here are a few points to consider.
  • The language of the caption title is Turkish (per Google Detect Language)
  • The tweeter is located in Ankara, capital of Turkey
  • Leonard Cohen gave two concerts in Istanbul on August 5 and 6, 2009
  • The square column with Leonard Cohen's image doesn't look like it's in the Grand Bazaar.
