Istanbul's Spice Market and Yeni Mosque

The Mısır Çarşısı or Egyptian Bazaar or Spice Market was one of my favourite places in Istanbul.  Its just opposite the Galata Bridge where fishermen spend their days collecting their catch and tourists enjoy walking to Asia and enjoying one of many beautiful views of Istanbul.

We visited the Spice Market each day we were in Istanbul to buy figs, apricots, cheese, bread, pistachios, and turkish delight to eat for our meals.  We met some great people there who loved seeing us each day.
