Constantinople, Part 8: The Grand Bazaar

After the Blue Mosque, Pelagia was eager to hit the famous Grand Bazaar. It was enormous and busy. We were getting quite tired by this point, so we stopped for tea at a little courtyard somewhere inside this sprawling complex. There, our waiter taught us how to play a couple different versions of backgammon, which is extremely popular both there and here in Greece. It was nice -- he didn't speak a word of English but we had a good time with him.

The top photo is at the entrance.

The second photo is inside.

The third photo is Pelagia in front of some lampadas she liked. They were only $6 each here. In Greece, they would be at least $30. Posted by Picasa
