Back in the mini-bus we hit the road for Goreme. On the way we made a stop at a school that likes tourists to come and visit. The kids were very excited that we had arrived. Some of them dressed up in traditional clothing and did some singing and dancing for us. Part of the classroom was set up as a traditional Turkish house.

Spent the rest of the day driving. Was looking forward to the next hotel, as Hussein told us that the rooms were caves! I found out later on that my room was nothing to get excited about.

The hotel is on the side of a hill and all the rooms are caves. The room that I was given was horrible. It stank mouldy, had a tiny little window and was dark- won't be spending much time in here! All the rooms at this hotel were very different, some people had pay TV, baths, huge rooms- mine was the worst of them all!

Spent the evening watching TV with the help of the hotel staff who were more than willing to assist us with the pay TV system. The two guys very excitedly recommended their favorite channels
