#EWBC: Istanbul – photos around the city, esp The Grand Bazaar
Have had a quiet time in Istanbul chilling out after the rigours of the EWBC and the post-trip to Georgia. In part because, like some others on the trip, I have had a mildish version of Uncle Joe Stalin's revenge, so have been reluctant to venture too far from our hotel. But we have been out and about including a visit to the Grand Bazaar on Saturday.
Bought some teas here. See selection below
