Cappadoccia


Cappadoccia is a veritable grab bag of Turkish delight. Rock-hewn churches built and decorated by the eleventh century Christians that you enter in complete darkness; the caravanserais; the rug merchants; the rock formations that astound and delight you. Cappadoccia has been called a fairy land of surprises and it really isn't just tourist talk. It still has these tiny villages in a storybook landscape that wind with the rivers among the rocks and valleys and seem to center around getting your product, rugs, vegetables, crafts, you just name it! to market. See for yourself. Details incoming. Stay tuned.

Mel, I've ridden the balloon before. Sad to say, this was not my first time. :) But this time was the best. I was with my friend Barbara who was terrified the entire time. Stood in the middle of the basket, white faced and shivering for 90 minutes. I have some of the funniest pictures of her. Because she is a living doll, I just can't post them. Which is too bad...because they are hilarious! So. Add ballooning as one more thing we'll do when we meet in that Gimondo Friendapalooza that's surely coming up.

LOL@Cornwall coast..... South coast not the cornish coast, but I know if I do not move to the states which now is looking less and less likely, I will end up in Cornwall, in a tiny cottage someone near the sea on me own with me chickens....

Twas a very lovely funny emotional evening, which left me totally exhausted and not being able to function for the rest of the weekend.... and I DONT wanna work tomorrow or in the near future doing what Im doing LOL.... but there is no way out....

I'll email tomorrow if possible.... busy as shit day and I so dont feel up to it, but its a job I cant pull a sickie on :(

Wow, Chechako. Hot air balloons are a passion. I've been up a few times...but that ride looks other-worldly.
