Istanbul and Cappadocia

Saturday morning we said good bye to half our group. It was an early flight and they made it home just fine.

The rest of our little group continued on with a tour of Topkapi palace. This was the home of the Sultan. It was a beautiful day, the palace was full of tourists and school children.  And flowers!

We flew out to Cappadocia that afternoon and found smaller towns, boutique hotels, and a slower pace of life.

Our days have been filled with visiting Cave museums where Monks created beautiful icons on the walls.  We have hiked the valleys and found fairy chimneys, ballooning over the area and found amazing valleys. It is amazing how God has created so many different landscapes and wonderful people.
