Wednesday: Spice Market + streets of Istanbul

On Wednesday, the class split into 2 different business meetings.  Before our meeting, our group went to the Spice Market, which is like a farmer's market with vendors selling different spices and foods.  Some pics:

On the way to the business meeting:

And after the day of business meetings, Raminder, Sonny, and I went out and walked around the back streets of the Grand Bazaar -- full of alleys and shops that more of the locals went to (as opposed to the tourists).  We then had dinner at El Torito (I had a hamburger -- yes, that's right), and we went back to the hotel to have a blogging party.  Unfortunately, that was the night where the internet conked out, and I couldn't post anything.

Anyway, pics from the back alleys that night:

And Sonny admiring his future bedroom decorations:
