"The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul has been a beehive of mutually beneficial exchanges for 550 years. Americans may think of Rodeo Drive or Madison Avenue when they think shopping, but while everyone pays the sticker price in America, price tags are rare at the Grand Bazaar. Show any interest in an item at one of the 4,300 shops in the bazaar and the proprietor or store employee will engage you immediately." (06/14/11)
