Istanbul : Day 05

Grand Bazaar followed by a wild hunt for Toys R Us. We didn’t find the store but went into the Spice Bazaar in the bargain.

Grand Bazaar is a funny combination of the New Delhi markets of Karol Bagh, Sarojini, Janpath, Yashwant Place all rolled into one. 

Bargain is a mild word. If you know your way around with words you’ll be able to get some decent deals. But you’ll never know if you paid the right price. 

Everything is priced in TL (Turkish Lira). The sites tell you to carry Euro but all shops including places like Starbucks accept all currencies but return TL. 

Tomorrow is the last full day we have in this beautiful fun city with Smiling people who have a wonderful sense of humor. 

If I can I’ll want to come back to this city when it is cold.
