Turkey Photo Set

Finally, I've completed another public photo set on Flickr. Turkey was really amazing, one of the coolest places to visit. So much so that we're going back this summer, to see some things we had to miss the first time. Anyway, in this Turkey album, you'll see both Istanbul (Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, the Grand Bazaar, the Spice Bazaar, Galata Bridge and Tower, Istiklal Street, Taksim Square, the Art Nouveau district, the Orient Express, and more), and the Seussian landscape of Cappadocia, where we stayed in a cave hotel, and explored around (fairy chimneys, Goreme Open Air Museum, Kaymakli Underground City, Rose Valley, Pigeon Valley, and the quaint villages of Goreme, Cavusin, Urgup, and Uchisar). You can view the complete set of my public photos at:

Turkey's just wonderful: there's so much to see and do, people are friendly, and costs are reasonable. I can't wait to go back this summer--we'll visit Izmir, Ephesus, and Sirince, and then go back to Cappadocia to fly in the hot air balloons, and do some hiking, before heading back to Istanbul for a couple of days. C'mon, summer!
