Swanning Istanbul life is the old market (photos)

In the eyes of foreigners, Istanbul's most famous Bazar is the City mosque beside the gold market, a native of Istanbul, people are more willing to call it to the top cover of the Bazaar.

There is no visit, I thought, there must have been on sale is famous for its gold, but I miss the tour Mira a face to tell me, if that's the case, I'm afraid all the police were deployed in Istanbul, where there is no guarantee of security.

Blue and white pattern plate

Not be valued by God

Market in which all day smoking a hookah in Turkey, is clear and does not care about your own business, even if a customer visit, they were just slightly to the eyelids, tall and continue smoking a hookah in their hands.

Here, the customer is God's theory does not exist. Traders who care only about their own feelings, to run, but here is to pass the time means. Mira told me that the complaint rate in the market is quite high, but the complainants were like me, because of the foreign tourists, in the eyes of the locals, there is nothing. If you go to market management center complaint, then the situation would be encountered. If you really think something, the best way is to dive in a purse. Here, do not attempt to show how smart he was, even if you charge more to convince a counter-offer, answered Yes, there is only one: those vendors who will be the eyelids slightly elevated, see you anymore, to continue their own things.

The old Bazaar of artisans

Who knows, how many good things, but for me the first foreigner to be here, and here too wonderful.

Color range of tapestries, modeling different pipes, and even in other parts of the rare animal specimens. I've been on a reindeer specimens full of curiosity, why is it made of specimen, or so vivid.

The old Bazaar of artisans

Although this is called the gold market, but the most famous market is manual.

In every corner of the market, scattered with many to weaving workshops for industry, while weaving the family pattern plain, uncommon gaudy or abstract pattern, but feel heavy with thin, delicate weaving method. But it seems my interest is not in the tapestry, one is spinning Lady caught my eye. She is a wool gently twist into thin shreds and then put them all into the spinning wheel, skilled and lightweight. Beautiful girl, you believe that the blanket will be magic? she will give well-meaning people bring happiness. I see her spinning darkness, is holding an has a yellow the functional thousand and one nights ". This is a plain old days in Turkey, her face was clear.

Spices and rotating dance

You know, even if it is the world's most sensitive hound arrived here, it can only be wagging its tail.

Initially I also don't understand Mira said this meant until I came to market in spice distributed district.

Here a wide variety of flavors, turmeric root, alone officinarum and common ginger allows me to do.

In order to explain to me, Mira will readily pick some leaves, broke off a small piece, let we smell and taste. While the market side is processing spices fat woman attracted me more interested, I started to learn about her appearance, no pecking away. You have to make the dot force! Mila station in a pile of turmeric leaves after remind me, and I now use a stone pestle is a pile of curry powder raw materials hammer into, know the past Turkey girl is married? whenever a man passing from the door, they desperately knocking. Men can marry sound maximum one, because he believes that she is the most diligent.

Market spice distributed district

If you want to taste the most authentic culture of Turkey, the City Museum is not the best place for you, because those things can only be quiet stay safe.

Mira insisted that I stay in the market for an hour, because the market closed the door for some time, here is the complete set, those lazy traders will become another appearance mdash; passion and sonorous, because they spin the ball is about to begin. Rotating dance is the Ottoman Empire a religious dance. Dancers only respected elders to scandals. The girls are doomed is rotating dance onlooker, even if their movements are so graceful. The ancient Ottoman people think, rotating dance is rendered to God the best gift, man is God's most loyal guardians.

Here's a dancer all market traders, they did not have any professional training, by virtue of her family from generation to generation.

Father will pitch adoptive son, but also the secret of the rotating dance to his son. Here's rotating dance is generally at the entrance of the dewDay in the square. Dancers dressed in white robes, wearing a Brown praises, waist tie a colorful waist cloth. Rotating dance before you begin, collective tribute to lead dancer in the elderly.

Rotating dance

Rotating dance philosophy is: they believe all things constantly in rotation, one of the constituent elements of the universe of the Earth and planets rotate together, people died, from birth to young, growing up and growing old, is a loop that is endless, as if the rotation did not stop.

They use their own rotation reach and communication and contact with God. Can you rotate the dance also has the impression that the dancers dressed in white robes and wearing a Brown Gaomaozi, they turned, white robes to round, very beautiful. They call it a ritual, but it is not easy to Semaz.


Perfume business has over centuries of time to the Ottoman Turkey bring huge trade profits.

Lift the spices, it merely means that today we are at the table, the kitchen can be seen everywhere in pepper, fennel, cinnamon and other spices. In Turkey, a fairly long period of history, perfume behind this word also includes rare and noble, or even temptation etc in it has been impossible to imagine today's rich connotation. At that time, people or even simply the rich man called pepper bag. Today, the ancient Oriental no longer, is a kind of luxurious life, powers a symbol of wealth, people will no longer be as spices to wage war. But people still love Turkey with spices, spice has been integrated into the lives of Turkey, more integrated into their blood.

In March of this year, I went to Chile.

For this country, the deepest impression is the Easter Island, it was a magical place.

Easter Island

Initial impression: tanned people


Departure from Santiago, after a 5 hour flight, behind the coastline was drowned in the sea and clouds, the aircraft had been to the West, toward the Pacific's hinterland-Easter Island.

The locals are tanned skin, let me good health admiration. Short street, hotel, restaurant, shop, and soon to the head. Turned the corner to the far side of the sea, and saw a very nostalgic yellow buses, so some uncertain at the moment.

Waves in Black Rock, great sound issued from time to time, is becoming increasingly fierce, the Sun makes my Flash some dizziness.

At this time, I saw the MOAI (comoe stone). This is what I see for the first group, the local people call the stone MOAI. Many years ago, I saw in magazines such scenes, astonished. Just then I never dreamed that one day, you can think of it. Sunset, although the thick clouds, but the Sun or in the fall to vanity and some before, so that orders the 5 add many vivid MOAI statues. I watched the sunset of the West, the vast Pacific Ocean, to the West, North, West, East, far away from home. The most special stone: correcting the splendor of the magnificent evening dinner, compared to Santiago, the same things about a couple of times as expensive, it tasted bad.

Rent a car cheapest SAMURAL, small, or 4 drives.

Hurry up, and didn't think to do international driver's license. Car girl looked at me and handed over the car, there is absolutely no doubt mdash mdash;; you know, domestic license does not have any English words, that is, you can give her any country of the card, the temporary residence permit, the canteen meal card yibaoka, as long as there is a photograph, OK!

The island has a highway, the more of a gravel road.

Rings island for a week about 50 km, continuous open nearly 2 hours. Many are open to the sea, couldn't stop. See figure around, was a car privately, red, seawater roll up a few flowers gorgeous whirlpool. Hot head, or sunset West, I was one of the ends of the Earth Gallery corner, quietly watching time resides.

The statue stands

The most northern island, a beautiful beach.

I think my ideal: coconut trees, azure, a knowing smile. Behind the beach, is a small Habitat, with half length of weeds. Aimless walk, a turn, they saw a picture of a singularly impressive. In I have ever seen, this is the MOAI is the most special one. The vast majority of MOAI, the face is long, but this looks good, the square. Although it is a stand alone, but face South and back north, a pair of spirit reigns. At this time, four miles quietly so that even the wind seems to have temporarily stalled. It must be acknowledged that Flash does have a unique power to shock me. Let me not to describe. Sunset, not distant 7 statue in the Sun reflects a pair of moving pictures.

Most impressive: this is a magical place on the last day of the morning, more than half an hour to the Northeast at the foot of the island.

The sky is darkest before the dawn, the head of the Galaxy twinkling differencebetween several constellations. Four darker, not far away to see one or two road I walk hand electro-optic, and there was light fine vocals. Eastern white clouds on the sea level or, as always, thick. For how many left two photos, I had to use some of the effects of processing on the camera. For never true digital photos, this is nothing to be ashamed of, says my consolation. In fact is indifferent, a few miles away, in the end is not to shoot some photos. He left to his wife sent a postcard, not quite sure what to write, pen tip to the paper, was a most of these days I get used to the language of nature revealed. Effect: this is an incredible place, I never thought that one day will be here, but I come; at this moment, I still feel it difficult to believe. Very grateful for his wife, gave me a lot of support and encouragement, and not limited to Chile.

Easter Island, aliens called EASTERISLAND, local people called the RAPANUI, literal translation of the navel of the world, I prefer another translation: the end of the Earth.

If I can describe a beautiful one-tenth of the island, the pleasure is all mine, or it's unfortunate.
