Spice Market, Istanbul

We spent a few hours in the Grand Bazar which takes you from leather goods to carpets made out of cow hides to trinkets and the poofiest wedding dresses ever (true 80s nightmares) to finally the spice part which is right at the end near the Bosphorous river (or is it the sea?). I took this photo with my Blackberry which didn't come out too bad, non?

It was an exciting walk through the market and the spice bit is the most colorful and fragrant. We ended our trek with lunch at Hamdt restaurant overlooking the Bosphorous where we ate a load of starters, which am not sure is normal but Kat who is German connected with the Turkish waiter, who lived in Germany for a few years, so we were in good hands.
