More Anatolians

We are not in Europe anymore. This is Asia Minor, in the New Testament and Anatolia in the Ottoman days. The people are Anatolian. You wouldn't see this in Istanbul, being a European city. The people in Anatolia are much more interesting and their culture much more pronounced. Initially I had only planned to go to Istanbul but after seeing pictures of Cappadocia, I had to venture further into Anatolia and added Ephesus and Cappadocia into the itinerary and I'm glad I did. Most people would include the Western coast also. I live near the Pacific Ocean and so beaches are not my thing.
