One of Istanbul’s most famous attractions is the Grand Bazaar, an indoor maze of over 4,000 shops selling everything from lanterns to spices to jewelry to purses. As we walked down each of the “streets” vendors called out towards us, beckoning us to view all their items. Its hard not to want everything, but personally, I do not like the hassle of haggling prices so it became quite a challenge even to get anything I wanted. Nonetheless, this covered market had so much to offer, even just to look at. This photo is of some exquisite green lanterns at one of the shops, with the flag of Turkey hanging from the ceiling in the background.
