I was expecting great things from Cappodoccia. This central Anatolian region gets mentioned in any conversation you have regarding your Turkish itinerary. You've either just been there, or you are on your way. A tourist Mecca if ever there was one.

And I have to say, despite all the hype and big expectations, it delivered. I arrived early …

So, after an extended stay, I pulled myself away from Olympos and headed back on the road. I was slightly dreading the bill, since you can just everything on a tab at the pension, but it was still a pretty cheap week. Staying still and not paying for touristy stuff definitely saves money, I'll need to work in more periodic stops like this for the …


... but very nice. Had a couple of nice meals with American guys and Pommy girl at Alaturca and Orient. Bone-chilling cold - could see breath in the middle of the day. Derinkuyu - 8 story underground city. Thought to date back to at least 1200 BC, it was carved out of the volcanic tuff and was almost completely unnoticeable from ground level. Saw stables, wine presses, living quarters, churches ...

    Dorm room was very clean and beds seperated into 3 sections within the cave. Everything in dorms was as expected and breakfast was really good with pastries and cereal to go with the usual Turk brekky. The main receptionist was a legend too; ringing round bus, ferry and dolmus companies helping me find my way to cypress. He let me print a bunch of forms that I needed too.

    Very nice, friendly staff and guests, they put on a BBQ that resulted in a lovely night with other guests. Cozy, though a bit chilly when I was there in December. Showers and loos are shared amongst all (I believe), but it's all worth the experience. They'll also help you organize any trips you might want.
