THE GRAND BAZAAR & SPICE MARKET SHOPPING IN ISTANBUL

I love to shop and find great finds and shopping in Istanbul was made fun with these bazaars & markets

I bought a ring that is beautiful from this awesome guy ! You can find incredible jewelry for $20.00 – items that some of stores here would sell 4x as much !

Istanbul is known for strong teas and incredible coffee – when in ISTANBUL this is the famous coffee maker – go here and bring your friends and family coffee home :

We had dinner that night in TUNEL right up the street from our hotel at this incredibly yummy place called

Sofyali 9 and then came out with many choices for our appetizers and then what we loved is you receive a wireless mouse

when you would like attention from the waiter you hit the button – such an interesting concept http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g293974-d787038-Reviews-Sofyali_9_tunel_off_istikal-Istanbul.html
