Snow in Cappadocia

-15 °C

Much to our surprise, we arrive to find Cappadocia covered in snow. Cappadocia is a region in Central Anatolia, Turkey and we stay in Goreme, a small village town famous for its fairy chimneys, cave houses and open air museum. The region of Cappadicia features some of the most spectacular landscapes made all the more special to see it covered in snow.

It is popular for tourists to come here for hot air ballooning, not our go, but an amazing site to see so many balloons over the valleys. We got to meet Chez Gallip a famous potter in the region, also known as the Turkish Einstein. He is considered a master and an artist in his craft, and is referred to as "master" by those who surround him. Here are some pics.
