A Glimpse of Cappadocia

I spent a week in the summer of 2009 based in Göreme, Cappadocia in Central Turkey. It's a beautiful place with much to see and do.

Most people I saw there hurried through much too busily. I hope that these photos can inspire and help people plan to spend their time better when visiting Cappadocia. A balloon ride at sunrise can be great, but to really appreciate the natural and cultural wonder of this region, you must get around on foot and keep your eyes open for wonders both small and large.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me, and I'll adjust or add the information on these pages so that you and others can benefit from it.
