That night we had to sprint to catch a night bus to Cappadocia which is completely different than Istanbul. The bus ride took all night and when we arrived it felt like we had gotten to the moon. I can't even describe the landscape here... there are massive rock formations everywhere and each layer of rock is visible becaus of the different mineral deposits.
We went on a guided tour of the various tourist spots today which was amazing... We saw all sorts of cave dwellings and churchs built within the rocks and saw women weaving turkish rugs on looms (i even got to tie a knot( and saw men making pottery on hand powered wheels. I could keep writing about everything we saw, but interweb here isn't too good... i just thought i would write a quick entry to update everyone while i had a chance. I;ll get some pictures up when I return to Israel. Hope everyone is well
