1.7 Grand Bazaar

The Grand Bazaar had a compelling visualisation of Istanbul, showing that trading held a strong position in the economy. Boats were closing the pier, workers unloading spices and tea from Asia, carrying them to Spice Market which was jus located in front of the pier. The cold winter was a rough situation to work, bad enough for traveling.


A cup of cay warmed his body as he was having a rest at one of the touristic cafes inside the Grand Bazaar. He asked why. However, it was nice with a slice of Baklava too. The sweetness of it was rich tough, so he resisted himself for putting a cube of sugar into his cay. Buy hey, Ataturk could have up to 18 cups of cay a day, an act that would bring normal people to suffer.
