This is just going to be a photo spam post. As with any typical tour, the guide will bring you to places where you can buy Turkish specialty products. My mom and myself are not so interested when it comes to buying them as firstly, we lack the financial means (everything is either in USD or Euros) and secondly, we lack storage. We don't leave in a six-storey mansion ok. However, when you look on the bright side, you can actually get a slice of Turkish culture with the amazing sights and in some places, they actually show you the origin of them.
At the small shops along the alleyway in Ankara. I like all the lamps in different shapes and sizes.
These are called Baklava, a type of Turkish delight in a shop at Istanbul.
A place near Efes, where a jolly fat man promoted Turkish delights to us. He made me laughed a lot.
At a carpet weaving co-op. They help underprivileged women, especially those from rural areas by giving them jobs of weaving carpets.
A lot of details and meticulous planning go into the design of carpets.
When they were promoting carpets to us, they started throwing carpets onto the floor, one after another, until the whole floor was flooded with carpets.
This one I really like - "The Last Supper"
"With time and patience, the mulberry leaf becomes silk"
I thought the co-op building looks nice from outside
At Cappadocia, they showed us how they make the ceramics, from the clay process till the painting process.
Bottles of paint
Turkish small bowls, very colourful and vibrant.
A unique ancient wine jar. You are supposed to put your arm through the big hole in the middle and hold the handle in order to pour.
Very unique and pretty designs
Another interesting shop along Ankara alleyways. This one selling spices.
Another one selling nuts and all sorts of grains
Also selling dried fruits.
