Ok, shopaholics...4000 stalls of everything from Turkish sweets to carpets. It is overwhelming. The Kapali Carsi is one of the world's oldest and largest covered bazaars, attracting nearly half a million people a day. Opening in 1471, it is a place for Westerners to learn bargaining skills. I bought a carpet from the man pictured here. We had tea, showed me many carpets, and finally when I liked one he said: "800 Euros" - for a 3' by 5' silk turkish carpet. gulp... with daughter Malia's help we got that down to 200 Euros and probably could have negotiated less. The bazaar was lively, interesting, and exhausting. And i came away with some really unique treasures.
