  • Pigeon Valley

    Goreme Warnings and Dangers

    My wife and I did the Pigeon Valley trail 10 days ago. The trail isn't too hard if you have good walking shoes on. And be very careful, not to go off track, as you will not see anyone en route to warn you. I had a harrowing experience at one point. The ground was slippery, and at one sharp turn the slope was fairly steep. I was only able to see the...

  • Fading churches

    Goreme Things to Do

    One of the attractions of Cappadocia (maybe the best!), are the old christian churches, built in the soft lava that covered all the region. Now, as the erosion is advancing, the churches come to daylight, announcing their inevitable disappearing. It hurts, seeing such historical places facing that destiny. But... there is, really, no solution at...

    Buying carpets in Turkey is a big thing, just be carefull when they try and sell you "old" carpets, cause they might not be that old. They put the carpets in the road, cover it with dust and let the cars run over it for a day or two , shake off the dust and then sell it for "old"

    Zelve Things to Do

    The fanciful figures resemble stone fields of giant mushrooms to children. Something like giant morels or fly-agarics, do you agree? They are inescapably phallic to adults. You don't agree? It’s up to you to decide, haha! I think it depends of mood and weather. The Turks call them Peri Bacalari: fairy chimneys (see my GT about Fairy Chimneys). You...

    Derinkuyu Warnings and Dangers

    If you're claustrophobic, don't even attempt to got down into the dark, tight spaces of the underground cities. Derinkuyu is an amazing place and very fun to explore, but passageways are often tight, single-file, and low. If you're here early enough to beat the tour groups, you might find it tolerable, but if not, I'd stay away if you don't like...
