After that we went through an underground city, which was awesome. Parts of it were constructed thousands of years ago so I was really impressed with how extensive it was. The ancient Turks used it at months at a time during invasions and attacks from neighboring peoples. The entire city is several stories high and goes about 40 meters under ground. Most of the caves and passages were extremely narrow so we had to make our way on our knees at points. We went to a few other caves and got to see a stone carver at work as well.
Well I'm about to hop on a bus to Olympus and then onto a boat for a few days so I probably won't have interweb there... I'll put up more when I'm back to civilization again.
