Inside the Koza Han...


...this is what meets you when you pass through the entrance into the former silk market.

In the middle of the courtyard is a small cami (mosque) where people go to pray. Underneath there is a fountain. Now the rooms around the edge of the courtyard are occupied by silk merchants on the upper floor and on the ground floor are cafes which have their tables in the middle. They are filled with shoppers exhausted after their hard bargaining in the silk shops!

What a wonderful atmosphere to sit in and have a cup of coffee or tea.

(Hey, my husband is Italian, too!)

fabrizio; about the man who carries the pink thing:this is a kind of sweet made from sugar.
you put sugar inside a special wheel-machine,you add some nutrimentpaint(pigment)for it's pink colour.
with very hot temperature it will become a sweet..it is very soft like a cotton so we call it "cotton sweet"

we will definitely take some pictures of the silk stuff..

fabrizio la tua foto meritava quel commento..

ararat;we have something in common ..funny coincidence..
