After exhausting the palace, we headed for the Grand Bazaar, which felt like stepping back in time. You could buy anything you can think of, from lanterns to carpets and perfume, ceramics and trinkets. It was like a scene from Aladdin - all it needed was a magic carpet. I managed to be persuaded to buy a lovely lantern made of glass, which I shall put in our new house, when we buy it. Feeling rather exhausted, we stopped for a drink in the Grand Bazaar, where David persuaded me to try Turkish coffee. It was disgusting! It was so strong, half the cup was coffee sediment, and it looked like mud. To take away the taste I had a delicious apple tea afterwards, which we have had many of now.
For dinner, we thought we'd move away from kebab for the night so we walked down to the fish market and had a fishy dinner. It was very nice, but not as good as the kebabs.
