Sarıyer market

To sum up the past few days:

Tuesday: Went to Istinye Park (a big mall in Istanbul)

Wednesday: Went to the weekly market in Sarıyer (see more below), met Hannah and Ryan’s friends

Thursday: Learned to play tavla (backgammon), saw The Hobbit at Istinye Park

Friday: Took the metro for the first time to Kanyon (a really neat outdoor-ish mall), tavla tournament with Hannah and Ryan

The market on Wednesday was a really cool experience. There were so many stands set up along the road under tents. Most of them were selling produce, but some were selling things like clothes, shoes, and bed linens. The produce was all fairly inexpensive compared to what I’m used to in the US. Here are some of the photos I took:
