There are two tourist bazaars in Istanbul. Obviously there is the Grand Bazaar and also the lesser known Egyptian (or Spice) Bazaar.
For us the Grand Bazaar was first.
First up my bazaar joke:
Where we walked in was a row of shops selling sponge fingers and then some selling jelly. Next up was a group selling custard and finally some selling glace cherries. Yes, it was a trifle bizarre! Ho ho
The thing ist full of stores selling pretty much the same stuff. You could probably condense it down to maybe 10 individual shops. A lot of it is typical tourist junk like knock off football shirts.
However, it is fairly hassle free. If you stop to look then they will try to sell you something but walking away isn't a problem.
Much better (IMHO) was the Egyptian (or Spice) Bazaar. Less tourist junk and more typically Turkish stuff. It is also not as big so it is more manageable. It is not as busy either so just nicer to walk around.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
