One of the coolest places was the grand bazaar and the spice bazaar. They had so much stuff for sale and they would charge you a million dollars for a 10 dollar toy and not feel bad about it. We always told them that we were poor students from Estonia and it usually worked pretty well.
This is the grand bazaar, the other picture was of the spice bazaar. I think Mom would have been in heaven!
They even had Russian nesting dolls here! What else could you ask for?
