Beypazari

A couple of months ago, we visited a town called Beypazari, about 100km west of Ankara.  Beypazari happens to be the town where own of my favorite bottled sparkling mineral water comes from.  So I thought we were going to see the natural springs.  But that never happened.  Beypazari is also a tourist town, full of historical ruins and houses from the Seljuks and Ottoman times, bazaar-like shopping, and also known for its traditional dishes, baklava made with 80 thin layers of pastry, and its production of carrots (and carrot juice!).  Below are some pics from that trip.
