Spent 2 days in Goreme which is in Cappadocia, eastern Turkey. Took in a cultural show with Whirling Dervishes (religious cult) and local dancing with all-you-can eat and drink. Sore heads all around the following morning.

But the major highlight was going on an early morning balloon flight which was so breathtaking and peaceful. I'll let the pictures say it all.
