We had a snack and then we walked past the Basillica Cistern, which no isn't a toilet! It's a massive underground hole now but is was used to store all the water for the grand palace and could hold 800000 cubic metres of water. We were only going in if it was free, which it wasn't so we over on and headed to the grand bazaar. Once we were inside ...
