Holy moly…can you believe we did all that in a morning? By now we were dying for a break, and we stopped at the Pudding Shop for lunch. Interestingly, it said Lale Restaurant, the same name as our tour guide. She explained that Lale is very common in Turkey and means tulip. Although we associate tulips with the Netherlands, commercial cultivation of tulips began in the Ottoman Empire.
The sounds of the bazaar...
What an information packed day!! Next blog...day two of touring with Lale. Thanks heavens we'll be driving tomorrow rather than walking!
