I had a magical time in Cappadocia, Turkey!  My hot air balloon ride was fantastic, and I got some of my favorite photos of this trip!  One photo ended going viral on Reddit.

The area is a UNESCO site famous for the amazing geological formations.  Look at those rocks!

There are cave hotels everywhere for very affordable prices.  The rooms are carved out of the soft rock.

On food characteristic of this region is the pottery kebab!  We got one with lamb, and it was like a stew cooked in a clay pot.  The waitress cracks the pot open right in front of you!  It was delicious.
