Turkey 2012: Day 13 - Central Anatolia (Capadoccia)

 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.
