Cappadocia - Day Two

And here are photos from our second day in Cappadocia:

I think they're supposed to be chickens or something, even though they look exactly like dinosaurs to me.

There are a bunch of underground cities in the area. The one we visited went 8 stories underground. There was a tunnel which connected it to a neighboring underground city, 9 km away. The first rooms and levels in the city were dug out a long time ago, maybe 8th century BC. In the 6th and 7th century AD, tens of thousands of Christians lived in the cities for months at a time -- as a place of refuge from persecution. Obviously, the lighting isn't great down there which made it difficult to photograph.

That's all for awesome pictures, although I have one more post about the trip in my back pocket.
