At the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul

I was in magnificent Istanbul last week.  At the end of a busy business agenda, I managed to go to the Spice Bazaar, a place I had been many years ago, but I wanted to go back.  For anyone who enjoys the art of selling, this place is absolutely fantastic.  A marketplace that has been a trading post for centuries, the people who work in 88 vaulted stores know their craft like no one else.  Here you'll find the finest caviar from around the World, Iranian saffron, flower teas, to the very local Turkish Delights.

Take your time to speak the salesmen and you'll quickly understand why these are the best negotiators you'll probably meet in your life.
