Where I stayed

Flag of Turkey  , Cappadocia,
Tuesday, July 6, 2010

After leaving the boat in Marmaris, I was lucky enough to spend one more night on the boat under the stars, with the gracious captain and his crew. I had a great tour of Marmaris on the back of a motorbike and am very grateful to my hosts.
I took a trip up to Ephesus and in the scorching heat, took a tour of the ancient Greek city. I made my way to the Izmir airport and flew to Ankara (the capital of the country) without incident. Instead of taking the overnight bus, I found a hotel and slept a well needed sleep in Ankara.
The next morning I met a very nice Turk who helped me buy my bus ticket and negiotate my way around the Ankara bus station.
I again was lucky on the bus because my seatmate works in Goreme (the tourist capital of Cappadocia) and she made all my arrangements (at a nice percentage off) over the phone on the way to Goreme. I was set up with a nice hotel with a pool (see picture), a hot air balloon ride, a tour of Nemrut and multiple tours of Goreme and Cappadocia.
Need to eat dinner now, will write more later.

It sounds like you're meeting people as open to adventure and beauty as you are. That's terrific.
