11/08/07 Goreme

we arrived in cappadocia, this thing is really something else. Half Oblio land, half giant phalluses land (probably depends on your perspective 🙂 )

we are staying in a nice hotel with a great view of goreme.

prepare yourselves for lots and lots of pictures

saturday in the morning we visited the goreme open air museum with it’s 10th century carved monasteries.

(as always, click on the pictures to see them larger)
