Preblogging: Cappadocia

Monday, June 18 Our bus gets in early in the day, and our first job will be to find our way to the Shoe String Pension. The soft rock of this region has been eroded by natural forces into surreal landscapes. The local residents have also taken advantage of the material by tunneling into it rather than building structures on top of it. In fact, there are several underground cities in the regions, into which entire towns would retreat for months on end when war above ground became too threatening. (Photos from various Cappadocia websites out there. Sorry, I didn't realize I'd be posting them when I first saved them!)

When I was in Cappadocia it was all covered in snow - very unusual for the area. It is breathtaking and I'm glad you got to see it!
