Oh no, there is never any violence. Just persistance :-)Bargaining is great, but ... you always lose ...
If you bargain well you may get a good price, its half of the fun. They don't hurt you, that their way of doing business :-)
That's what they do in Turkey, Goingsilver and Cevas. Been there twice now. They step up to you, ask where you are from (in English) and if you don't answer, they change languages :-)Then they say they're the cheapest, that they got exactly what you want, they offer you apple tea, say they don't want you to buy anything and that they just want to show you something.Then you enter and start bargaining... when you leace without buying, they come after you and continue bartering :-)
Great picture!! Thank you Starlord. I've never been there. Lorna I agree with you. I would not like to be pulled into a shop!
Love this scene, but I am more inclined to buy if I am not being harrassed!
You can't take it with you... so spend it all now
But that take a lot of money ..... let's see just what is money ...
Well, there's a world outside :-)Lots of nice places to visit.
Never been there ... I not a world traveler like you ...
Indeed they do that in Istambul, Bentley. They do it everywhere in Turkey :-) And it doesn't matter what language you speak, they speak it themselves or they know someone who does. And once you're inside, the bartering starts :-)
I love walking through a bazaar like this. In Istambul they litterly pull you inside to buy something.Thanks Starlord :-)
