    ... we have already been to 5 times, Babel. As it’s a city that never sleeps, we get there at 10.30, have dinner at 11 as the restaurant closes around us, we go on our way at 12. Andrew and I promise that this is the last time that we will go; 6 times is enough :-)

    ... Ox was on the hunt for a traditional knife to add to his collection, and almost made a purchase, however decided against it when he found a similar one in another shop that was falling to bits (maybe not for Aus $200.00).

    ... between Muslim culture and others of the time? The public parts of the building are designed to be impressive and to project the wealth and grandeur of the owner, whereas the private (harem) areas are decorative but far less sumptuous. The Grand Bazaar is amazing to see inside, but an appalling place to be a tourist. Miles of stalls, with jewellery the main item.
