it's kinda like visitiıng the flintstones!

today we toured cappadocia. we saw churches, schools, homes and places of business... all inside caves! we visited a local pottery shop where we watched, and participated in, the entire process from shaping the clay to drawing the design & painting it by hand. at a local rug shop we learned about the art of turkish rugs. they explained how they grow the silk and dyed the strands eventually weaving them into these incredibly beautiful rugs. and finally we saw what are called the "fairy chimneys"... these amazing rock formations. it is all so beautiful
& very different from anything i've ever seen before!

i love the hotel/cave... kinda gives a different meaning to the phrase "hole in the wall". i wonder if i could get away with a cave-house here in the states???

Laurie said...

That is completely cool. The comment from Kat (above) is soo funny. "Hole in the wall". LOL

So pretty! It looks like every place you go is out of a movie or something! Hope you are having so much fun!

Hey, I've made a turkish "bowl" on my trip to Turkey a few years ago (went there on a whim, by myself...left dh and five children at home).

I was amazed at how much I enjoyed Turkey--I'd never thought of going there before.

What a fun experience! How is the language barrier - if any? What inspired you to go to Turkey? Have fun and be safe!
