We began our journey in this beautiful land located at the heart of Turkey. We stayed at a very small hostel called Elif Star Cave Hostel, which, as the name suggests, is built upon actual caves. Our host/tour-guide, Kadir Teke, received us in the middle of a cold night with open arms, he helped us plan our activities for the next 2 days right there and then and even gave some medicine to one of the girls in our party who ended up missing all the fun because of a bad cold. We hoped we could go for a hot air balloon ride the next day but since the weather didn't allow it we rescheduled it for our last day here.. So on our first day we went to Pasabag, also known as the Valley of Monks and Kadir took us to a place he called the Valley of Imaginations, because all around us there where this amazing rock formations called "Fairy Chimneys" that resembled pretty much anything you mind could conjure up, like a rabbit's head or a sitting camel. We stopped for lunch and afterwards we headed to a place called Bazaar 54, Top Quality Handmade Turkish Carpets makers, it was really mesmerizing to see how these carpets are made and the insane amount of detail they have when you take into account that they are 100% hand made and most take at least a year to be done. Kadir then took us to one of the hundreds of subterranean "cities" that exist all around Cappadocia, it's hard to describe the magnitude of these things, it was endless, most of the turns had to be closed down so tourists wouldn't get lost. To finish the day off, Martin and i along with 2 girls that were staying at the hostel went to a dinner show with free beer. And thank god for the beer because the show was just terrible, but in a fun way.
