Spice Market in Istanbul, Turkey

Nobody’s business but the Turks. (Things to do in Istanbul, Turkey.)

While I spent my nights having fun around Istanbul, I spent my mornings touring some of the bigger attractions.

Like the Spice Market where I could have bought anything from nuts to candy to scarves to natural viagra.

And the Galata Bridge, where men spent their day and night fishing.

And Hagia Sofia, a basilica turned mosque turned museum.

And the ancient Basilica Cistern, Istanbul’s largest.

Even after a week in Istanbul I don’t feel like I got to see everything I hoped to see. What I ended up loving most was that it seemed to have the perfect mix of old world and new world. After touring around some other stops in Turkey I should be back in a couple of weeks for more though!

    I love how all the spices make the little peaks. I do wonder though if they actually sell any? If they do, do they repeak the spices??

    The cistern is on my list.
