A few days later we awoke at 4:30 in the morning – which is an adventure all by itself – and packed ourselves onto a shuttle bus in the predawn darkness, heading for a balloon launch site. Cappadocia is a big-time ballooning destination; on any given day, if you get up early enough, you will see a hundred-odd balloons soaring ...
