Burton Dane Travels

We're traveling through Europe and parts nearby for a year. We'll be posting our pix and adventures here.

We continued touring the sites here in Cappadocia where people lived inside the rocks, underground and amongst the aliens.

There may be 100 underground cities in this area, possibly linked by long tunnels. These were siege holdouts that the civilians used for months at a time. Possibly up to 30,000 people in some of them. The cities extend six stories below the surface with all you need to outlast your attackers. Stables for animals, kitchens, baths, meeting rooms, sleeping rooms, food storage even wineries. Ben is shown 4 levels down, sitting on a rock used for food preparation.

Our tour also included some requisite tourist “opportunities”. Ben rode this camel (and stayed dry). He got to play on a potters wheel and Jules got to run from a sales guy. They reviewed the documentation on alien encounters while I got a haircut and shave. I’m not sure who saw the weirdest stuff during that one.

    I knew that once Jules did bald, you'd eventually need to try too. Sylvia
