Those are the most amazing pictures! I love the one of the apricots. That must have been one great trip, Sara. I’d have gained 10 pounds for sure!

I want to go now…so badly. I want one of those gorgeous spice mills, and some of those lanterns, and don’t get me started on the spices themselves..everything looks so exquisite.
Great job with the photographs.

I never get a chance to go to the spice bazaar, there is family and friends to visit, always other things to do but after seeing your pictures, I am planning to spend an entire day there. Thank you for sharing these pictures.
