Another fine day from Pamukkale.
The night before dad and I went to the hot spring at our hotel and it was free of charge.
So as you can see this was actually indoor hot spring site.
It was actually my first time to experience the hot spring.
I also experienced the 40 degrees Celsius hot spring and it was really awesome.
Soaking our body at the hot spring water can kill our toxic from our body.
I’ve a very good sleep after that.
Today will be a very very very long journey.
From Pamukkale to Cappadocia took about 12 hours.
I knew it will be worthwhile to sit a long hours in coach to Cappadocia to experience the hot air balloon
Of course on the way to Cappadocia we’ve have couples of toilet stop and have some time to shop for souvenir along the way.
This is one of the local Turkish delight which I’ve tried during my toilet stop at the rest house.
It was a mixture of yogurt and honey and poppies seeds.
It tasted a bit weird at the early stage but as you continue a few more spoon it actually tasted better and eventually it tasted very nice.
After sat for 4 hours in the coach, we stopped by to have our lunch.
The restaurant famous for their local pizza.
Salad for the starter
lantern soup again!!
lantern soup – (pumpkin and haricot bean soup)
This is the turkish pizza.
One thing special about turkish pizza is that the base of the pizza is very thin so you just need to bite softly it will diverged inside your mouth.
Finally, get to eat chicken.
We went in the kitchen to see how they made the pizza.
After lunch,we headed to Mevlana Museum which ic also known as the Green Mausoleum or Green Dome.
It is original tekke or lodge of the Mevlevi Whieling Dervishes, a mystical Sufi Muslim group .
It contains the tomb and shrine of the 13th century Mevlana or Rumi which remains a place of pilgrimage.
Me with spectacles.Do I look nerdy?
Going inside the Green Mausoleum which you cannot wear shoes inside.
I’m going to wear the blue plastic bag on my shoes.
Some of the gallery of the Jawi.
Really love this short very much.
I was actually hunting for some people surrounded me just a sudden feel to do it and this old man was about 50m from me and without hesitation i trigger my shutter.
It became one of my favorite shot of the trip.
I’ve been observing this little girl when I realized her inside the dome.
When I came out from the dome and walked the small garden at there I spotted her again so just captured her, such a cute little girl.
Oh My God, My ass was super numb!
Finally we reached at Cappadocia after approximately 12 hours.
We will spend two nights at this beautiful and unique hotel.
This hotel was actually in a cave shape.
In fact we actually sleep inside a cave.
So, this is our cave room.
Different room have different design and all of the sizes of the room are not equal.
Its time for dinner!
This is the look of our cave restaurant.
Look at my tired face! Sleepy face!
Not lantern soup anymore but tomato soup I believed was.
Beef kebab again !
Desserts,but I quite like the desserst.
Tasted kinda like condensed milk so i like it as you know I love milk very much.
p/s : Stay tune for the Hot air Ballon ride at the next post!
