Well, we're now in Turkey, soon to travel to Syria, and I realise it's been a while since I wrote my own post for the blog. Well, I'm not about to catch up with this one, but thought I'd skip forward with a photo from Göreme, in the Cappadocia region of Turkey.
Have a look at the bizarre 'fairy chimney' structures in the background. They're all around the town we're staying in, and most were hollowed out and made into houses hundreds of years ago. It's quite surreal. The Göreme open air museum showcases a set of thousand year old churches hollowed out of these fairy chimneys and the surrounding cliffs.
