Up up and away in Cappadocia


We arose at 5 am today to be ready to take off for the sunrise at Cappadocia. Sixteen of our group gently took off for an hour excursion through the surrealistic landscape of the surrounding area. We told David, “Merry Christmas” as thoughts of our next MasterCard bill came to mind! Cappadocia is definitely one of the highlights of our Turkey tour. The rest of the day, we explored many of the underground cities and caves which were inhabited by the early Christians hiding from the Romans.

    Wow, the balloon ride looks amazing! Don’t worry about the money ,Michelle still has a job. Interesting that the Christians hid from the Romans and later it was the heretics hiding from the Christians. Specialize in having a blast.
