simply beautiful... smells incredible...
SPICE MARKET exploring!
saffron is NOT yellow, but BRILLIANT red!
dissolved in water - saffron turns yellow!
Turks love their tea!
delicious apple tea for a drizzly, damp day of sightseeing!
open bins of tea!
Rick Steve's recommends you purchase fresh spices, teas, nuts and fruits
BUT have them vacuum packed
so you don't run the risk of
losing your purchases when you reenter the US
purchased soup spice for our winter soups
your MUST include a visit to the Spice Market
(if you get to Istanbul)
see you tomorrow!
