Our trip started, if you remember with our pseudo-carpet-buying experience in Istanbul. So it is fitting and very exciting that with just few days to go I have decided we could afford a small Kilim (a rug as opposed to a carpet).
It is even nicer and easier as we have bought one off a friend – Alibaba, the brother of our couch surfing host. I didn’t expect to buy one , but am very glad to have the ultimate souvenir to take (well, post ) home.

The rugs and Kilims in Turkey are just beautiful.
I could easily fill our home with them (don’t panic Wayne, I’m not)
