I know it has been a while since I’ve posted, but it really couldn’t be helped. I don’t know how to even go about trying to fill in on everything we’ve done, but I’ll try to give the abridged version.
Let’s see, where did I leave off…oh yes, Istanbul. After we left Istanbul (without a carpet or a lamp, sigh), we took an overnight bus to Goreme in the Cappadocia region. I thought, at the time, that it was the most god awful form of transportation that I had ever been on. I found out later that it was only the second most god awful form of transportation. The bus was freezing cold, which wasn’t too bad since I was so happy to not be sweating for the first time in days. Sleeping was impossible because we were right behind the driver and he kept us up with his music and conversation. It was wretched, and when we got in the next morning at about 7am I swore nothing could have been worse. Oh, how naive I was.
