Just another doorway

I'll resist looking at more photos taken around Santa Cruz and resume where I was, which is in Turkey in September 2010.

Istanbul's Spice Bazaar is a large spice-oriented market hidden behind a nondescript doorway. It dates back to the mid-1600s. The market has about 85 shops selling spices, sweets, jewellery, souvenirs, and dried fruits and nuts.
