Istanbul and Goreme

Location: Istanbul & Goreme, Turkey

The Ghetto tour was off to an excellent start in Turkey. Istanbul proved to be an amazing place with friendly people. A strange mix of Europe and of the Middle East. Goreme was an amazing landscape, like the moon with amazing cave shelters and underground cities.

Paul Brenner shows us the hoppa salute in Goreme. He's in a cave dwelling that dates BC sometime. He looks a bit like a troglodyte does he not?

Paul Brenner was popular with the locals. He almost had celeb status in Istanbul. Here he is being interviewed for a local school newspaper.

NickyJ climbs up to a cave dwelling high above the ground. We considered stairs would have been an excellent improvement on some of these places.

The Fairy chimneys - hard rock left high after softer rock erodes around it. Looks amazing huh! Some would say fairy chimney is a fairly tame name for them.

The Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Very pretty. Very noisy five times a day and somewhat smelly inside (no shoes allowed). Still worth a visit.

This is Nick sitting way out on a rock. Sheer drops on either side. You don't get more extreme than the Ghetto.

PB - man of action hoons around the track. He could be pod racing in Star Wars and it would look the same.
