Egypt & Turkey Part 19: Goreme Open-Air Museum

Our last day in Cappadocia land, we spent it at the Goreme Open-Air Museum. This is Cappadocia's most famous attraction only a 15 min walk from the main village, Goreme. The Museum has over 10 churches as well as rectories, dwellings and a religious school. They all form a large monastic complex that almost forms into a ring-like shape formation in the Cappadocia landscape.  You can learn more about the Churches here at Scared

We spend another long bus ride all the way back to Istanbul where we enjoy a Turkish dinner, with a glorious city view, and the Blue Mosque close in sight. 

Look at this cool little dude!

After a long climb through the Cappadocia cities, I enjoy some ice cream after.

This pottery guy is famous around the world. He makes amazing pottery that is sold in expensive department store world-wide.

He made this in under 5 mins!

All of his designs and pieces

I love these balls. Would love to hang those in my home.

He took a liking to me, and showed me a piece he had done in Canada.

It's dinner time!!

I forget what this was...
