Day 8- Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Adventure

Day 8

Today is the moment of truth, the Cappadocia hot air balloon adventure -breathtaking view over the Cappadocia magical landscapes.

Day 7- Kaymakli Underground City vs Turkish Belly Dancing

Day 7
Today, we visited Kaymakli Underground City, got houses around nearly thousand tunnels of underground city.   When we went deeper, the tunnel becomes narrow which we had to bend-down and squatted.

Day 6- Goreme Open Air Museum

Day 6

Before stepping our feet at Goreme Open Air Museum in Cappadocia, we were brought to this Carpet merchant known as Matis Carpet.  The carpets sold here are damn expensive.  The same story as the leather shop told earlier in Day 3.  None of us buy anything because the cheapest silk carpet with a footprint of your feet will cost you USD300.

Then we visited the Goreme Open Air Museum.  This open air museum resembles a vast monastic complex composed of scores of refectory monasteries placed side-by-side, each with its own fantastic church and dramatic rock formations.

Easy to say it is a rock-cut churches, with beautiful wall paintings on the walls and ceiling.  No photo allowed in the churches.

Day 5- Sultanhani Caravanserai

Today, we had a long journey to Cappadocia, near the Nevsehir City.

We had a few stops for WC and pray.  It was a tiring journey but the view is great.   It took us 6 hours from Pamukalle to Konya.
