beyond the bazaar

Last week, my friend Shamila took me to a place few foreigners are lucky to set foot in— the workshops behind the Kapalı Çarşı, otherwise known as The Grand Bazaar. This is where some of the gorgeous handcrafted jewellery and metalwork found in the bazaar are made. The building is ancient; in some corridors, you feel like the modern world has completely disappeared.

Apparently this space can be rented for about 63 liras a month.
I could use a studio to paint in...
