most merchants at the Spice Market were wonderful. Turkish hospitality
was great. But, I was befriended by Omer. He invited me in his shop
just to take photos - so I did. There was so many colorful spices,
beans, oils, and sweets. And, when I was done with the entire market,
I came back to his shop. He got me Turkish tea and gave me free Turkish
delight. Okay, so I was "guilted" into buying, but I was
happy to get several bags of Turkish saffron. They would be presents
for my friends because I sure don't cook.
