Just got back from three weeks in Turkey, and as always it was a fantastic trip. We visited Istanbul, Cappadocia, Cirali, Kas and KayaKoy, and I fell in love with the Mediterranean region just as I had previously fallen in love with Istanbul. We only had seven days in Istanbul this trip, and that was way too little time to spend in the city that has totally captured my heart. Because I was traveling with a couple who had never been to Istanbul before, most of my time was spent showing them the major sites and doing things I’d previously done. I’ll only mention the new things I discovered/experienced in Istanbul in this thread, and I’ll do a report on the other areas of Turkey in a separate thread.
