Our room was large with a double bed and a single. It was bright with 3 large windows. Unfurtunately the toilet had a leak and it left a musty smell. Hence the windows were left open. WiFi is excellent but it is only available in reception as the stone walls make it difficult to penetrate.
The meals are really good. It is in a seperate building across a public lane. They are served buffet style and there is a good selection of European and Turkish dishes.

... St Paul's letter of Revelations was sent to the people there.
Visited Halicilik Kursu, a carpet weaving school & co- operative working at keeping the traditional craft alive. Mulberry trees are grown to feed the silk worms & the male cocoons are used to make silk. Natural dyes such as pomegranate & indigo are used & the carpets are hand made & take months to complete. They are hand knotted & exquisite.
... be silly not to try them all.We learned that Turkey has the 3rd largest land area of grape growing in the world- for table grapes & juice. Being a Muslim country, wine is not a popular drink; 75,000,000 litres are made a year.
The period of the Hittites was from 1700-1200BC & their civilization collapsed with the arrival of the"Sea People"- Northern Barbarians. Other groups came ...
... the highlight was definitely a ballon ride just after sunrise. We floated over and through all different valleys and saw the region of Cappadocia from above - there were about 80 other balloons up as well and the views were spectacular!
