Spice Markets

Yesterday evening we visited the Spice Market, about 10 minutes walk from our pension.

This was another amazing place with spices we hadn’t even heard of - perhaps that was due to the fact that the names were not written in English. Even allowing for that I am sure there were lots we wouldn’t even know how to use! The colours were brilliant and made excellent photograph material; although taking pictures was made difficult by the throngs of people that seemed to appear from no-where to fill the camera lenses and so prevent the ‘picture of the month’.

We couldn’t resist buying 2 of about 6 different kinds of Turkish Delight in honey and ate them while we walked around the market.

Whatever there is to eat I am sure you will find it here!
