Going to the Spice Bazaar and the Grand Bazaar had to be one of the most overwhelming but wonderful experiences in Istanbul. At certain times, there would be so many people that you couldn’t stop at a shop or booth – you just moved with the flow. But then you would find yourself alone with no idea how you got to that part of the Bazaar or how to get back to where you came from. Bright colored lanterns hanging everywhere. Baskets of spices creating wonderful smells. Turkish Delights calling to you from across pathways. Men attempting pick-up lines at every turn. Very, Very different from going to Walmart…well, maybe not the pick-up lines.
