Turkey 2012: Day 13 - Central Anatolia (Capadoccia)

Ballooning
 Exploring underground cities
 
 Gawking at Uchisar village
 
 Creating and shopping for pottery
 
 Absorbing the surreal scenery
 Waiting to watch the dervishes whirl

Turkey 2012 -- Day 12: Central Anatolia (Driving to Cappadocia)

We start the day with a drive through the countryside along the Silk Route, with a stop at one of the restored caravanserais.
 
Mostly the landscape looks a lot like North Dakota - but with a mountains in the distance.
Until we arrive in Cappadocia. We are definitely not in North Dakota anymore.
 
 We end the day with a little carpet shopping.

Today is mostly a driving day.
Our destination for the day is Konya, where we visit the Mevlana Museum.
 
We are staying here for the night too, in a hotel right in the heart of the city.
