When you think Istanbul you have to think Bazaar, spices, shopping, scarves, smells, and all that. So of course, I went to Istanbul prepared to drop a good amount of money on souvenirs and ingredients and scarves. And I did. But on my return trip back, Alitalia lost my luggage, and with it, all my souvenirs. So this is kind of a sore spot for me. But enjoy the pictures!
