Where am I? Is this still Istanbul?
Obviously the clothes are designed for leggy, blonde Russian girls!
Men can be seen trundling huge loads...
...or waiting around for the next lot!
...or just waiting around!
Tas Han, the old bazaar quarter
The original stonework was preserved as much as possible in the restoration of the han,
as can be seen in the upper floors...
...and in the long narrow corridors of shops
Nearby, these workmen were playing with a dog; business seemed slow...
...although the shoe cleaner was busy with a customer...
...and these ladies were selling their knitwear.
Finally, it was time to go, so I took the tram back to the hotel ready for the next adventure.
This was an interesting area, because of the different types of people there, and its cosmopolitan feel. I think I will have to visit again soon.
