Here is our fearless leader. So for three whole days, we followed him, starting at 8.30 in the morning and finishing at 7pm. It was so exhilarating. The landscape was so strange and beautiful.
We saw new buildings on top of old caves. There is running water, hot and cold, there is electricity and there is cable TV.
Some of the new buildings had to be abandoned because they failed to reinforce the old caves which are now crumbling.
There is this 'log cabin' style building on top of this hill, an American woman lives here. There are a few expatriates living in the area, some of them are writers and travelers for 'Lonely Planet.'
This place is also abandoned. This trip has been, by far, the most adventuresome we've been on. We left Turkey to go to Venice, Germany and Amsterdam but the memory of Cappadocia spoiled the fun of all the other places. We couldn't get over our trip to Cappadocia. I read that this surfer boy in California was asked what he enjoyed about his trip to Turkey. He said,' Cappadocia, don't miss it.' You can almost hear him say, 'narly.'
