... cathedrals supported by giant columns. Interestingly there were also many pigeons holes carved on the wall to accommodating the birds, even slots for honey bees. In town , we visited a Pottery master at his studio. He makes traditional as well as his own design art work.

... out the window of the bus was a flock of Cappodoccia's signature hot air balloons, hanging montionless above the horizon, much in the way that bricks don't (my favourite Terry Pratchet metaphore, I finally have a place to use it!). Forty minutes later when I pulled into Goreme (a small town in the middle of Cappodoccia national park), I could see the famous rockscape of cliffs and valleys and towers.
