Turkey!

Some houses for refugees of South Ossetia and Abkhazia outside of Tbilisi in Georgia.

Starbucks in Turkey! We had to go, I know, I know so bad!

On the look-out for Armenians just up the hill from the Spice Market. We never found any.

Henni and a man selling tea.

Spices! I had to buy some Garam Masala.

Looking across the Bosphoros from a ferry.

A beautiful mosque.

It was SO cold on the ferry, but the tea never ends.

One of the rooms in which we stayed in Seljuk.

A ruin outside of Efesous. We didn't actually go in to explore because it was too expensive. We walked around along the fence and saw a pretty good portion of the site.

Some stone houses in the village of Goreme in Cappadocia.

Bird houses in Pigeon Valley.




These caves were filled with trash. Bummer.

This village is full of INCREDIBLE cave hotels. A great place for a honeymoon!


Looking down into the White Valley.

Henni and I.

A stone home.

The view from the cafe.



Coffee in Cappadocia!

Getting lost somewhere in paradise.

We were supposed to be down on that trail.

Love Valley formations.



Love Valley.

The underground city.




A kitten I found down in the cave. I gave him a free tour of the place.

Wow, great photos! I've always wanted to visit Turkey and your photos are proving that I should do so sooner rather than later!

"Love Valley Formations" is so elegant.

These are lovely pictures of your surrounding and of you (the Kitten is cute too). I really enjoy seeing a glimpse of what you are experiencing on your adventure. Love Uncle Dennis.
