First stop , Anatolian civilization museum of Ankara , by the way this is the capital of Turkey .
I won't bore you now with all the pictures HS took , she is back in form . It was a very interesting Museum .
Had to have a decent coffee before we left . Not sure which of us had B O , but there is a definite gap there .
Five hrs traveling to go . The wheels on the bus go round and round .
Sorry missed photo of HS with all her mates .
Stopped for lunch .
Speciality of area , some kind of pizza .
No explanation needed .
howTurkish is this .
Back on bus , the wheels on bus go round and round .
Landscape not unlike north west NSW in summer .
The wheels go round and round . Arrived at second biggest lake in Turkey , one big salt pan . Could have gone to Point Cook if I wanted to see salt . Hi Mick , Helen .
Back on bus , the wheels go round .
Toilet stop .
The wheels go .
Coming into Cappadocia , wow , what a change of scenery , fantastic . What wheels .
These photos don't do the landscape justice , taken on moving bus .
Arrived at hotel , Ciner at Goreme , not bad , cleaned up , off to 300 year old Turkish baths .
They said Turkish bath not make up party , with donkey ? On face .
Guess who is over with the men again , men with ? On there faces .
Sorry no more photos from here on , camera not allowed , had to prize it from HS hand .
Thought we would be segregated , nope , what a continuos laugh .
Sauna , then exfoliated ,then lay on hot marble , all together , no not in the altogether , keep your minds clean , but still in only these tea towels . While on hot marble we are soaped up , very soaped up , washed then massaged while still on hot marble slab . This is happening to about 6 people on same slab , with others on slab waiting their turn . Bugger any dignity , that stayed outside .
Plunge in jacuzzi , interesting getting in and out with only a tea towel on , especially HS who had mini tea towel , would have loved a camera then . Personnel viewing only of course !! Possible others had personnel viewing . Shower ,dressed then hot apple tea . What an experience .
Back to apartment , rest , don't need to clean then off to cave restaurant .
HS wanted to wear silly hat insisted I did too . I think she looked silliest .
Traditional method of cooking meal in ceramic pot for 6 hrs then the top is cracked open and meal poured out . HS doing her own cracking , hopefully that's all she will be cracking .
Good Turkish food , good local wine , what more could you ask for ?
Back to hotel , night cap and bed . Good night , don't let the bed bug bite .
