Another long travel day - about 10 hours in the minibus...we drove from Cappadocia along the ancient Silk Road just like the ancient traders. We stopped on the way to visit Sultanhani Caravansary - like a hostel where the traders (and their animals) used to stay along their journey.

In fact, I wrote a paper about repeated houses (where Neolithic people rebuilt their houses on the same footprint over generations and generations), using House 5 as a case study. Imagine my excitement when I actually saw the excavated remains of that very house in our site tour!!! I couldn’t stop taking pictures!!!
