Well, the week of my sister visiting has come to an end.  Early this morning we headed to the Ankara airport en route to a white Christmas in Munich.  We arrived at the airport around 4:45 a.m. only to find that the flight was cancelled due to fog in Ankara.  That’s right, not due to the snow in Munich!  Luckily, our ride wasn’t far away and he returned to scoop us up.   We WILL be on a flight this afternoon.  Look for future posts on the German celebration of Christmas.

In the meantime, here are some photos from last weekends trip to Kapadokya . . .

  1. T,

    What FANTASTIC pics! Are they all dwellings? Man you really out did yourself this time.

    I find this type of architect very mind boggling…like how did they pull this off, how much time did it take, where was the excess put, how long will it last, how large were the families and I could keep going.

    Thanks and keep it coming cause we in Sharon Hill love it!


  2. I enjoyed reading your post–especially about Cappadocia. We were there for the first time last week–from the 23rd to the 26th. (We stayed in Göreme at the Kismet Cave Hotel). We are new to Ankara this year–arrived in late August. So far, so good–save for a few challenges along the way! Thanks for sharing your experiences.
