We are in a mystical dreamy land of fairy chimneys, cave churches and homes and over 200 underground cities.

Yesterday we explored huge rock church caves with frescoes and paintings inside.

Rich climbed up 3 story rock houses where people used to live (I only made it up 2). See photo of rich in orange shirt.

This morning we woke up at 4am to go on a hot air balloon ride. It was quite windy, so we were lucky as we were one of the 2 of the 5 balloons in our group that flew. We flew over many pretty valleys and saw many other balloons too.

We then visited a large, intricate underground city where they used to hide for over a month. They had 8 levels underground with stables, wineries, churches, kitchens, etc. They has tiny small tunnels and one way stone doors to prevent intruders. It was quite claustrophobic.

We also stopped by a pottery shop where they make beautiful pottery. Lucky for rich, I only took a photo. ;)

Ps ghostrider2 was filmed here. Guess we will rent it when we get back.
