Our Visit to Istanbul and Cappadocia!

Dear Commons Community,

Elaine and I spent the past week traveling in Turkey.  While we spent most of our time in Istanbul, we also managed a 700-mile side trip to Cappadocia in central Turkey.  For the entire trip, we logged in approximately  12,000 miles of travel.  I posted the highlights with photos most days as best I could given some Internet connection issues.  Below is a recap of those posts and our visit.

Without a doubt, Turkey has a lot to offer travelers interested in history, culture, geography and geology.
