Here it's hard to find a hotel that isn't carved into an ancient cave.
Outside our room and the first night is snowing
Monastery in Goreme.
Crazy above ground and going below.
Out there be the pigeon poop farms...really.
"Look, Monk house"
Churches get painted on.
Too bad the monkeys are blocking the great view.
This guy, these ceramics, in this cave
Climbing into here:
Looking back up
Turkish friends just as bonkers.
Cramped even for an undergound city
Never-stop carpet weaving,
Never-stop carpet selling.
Fun with rental car.
Thanks front-wheel-drive. You did well.
I never could get these on.
Caves make good churches.
The only other people here were hunting rabbits.
The question is only which alien race built Derinkuyu - among the grandest of underground cities.
Vertical air vents go super far down.
