The wonder's of Cappadocia

Cappadocia is truly unique. Many, many years ago this area was a lake. A volcano erupted and filled the lake with lava. It formed layers of soft rock. Four thousand years ago the area became inhabited and people started to dig into the soft rock to make their homes and stables. Wind and rain further eroded the soft stone making chimney like structures.

The place is quite a site to behold, with the fairy chimneys, churches, 124 underground cities, valleys and hills. We have been here two days now and we still haven't seen all of the wonders. We took lots of photos and you can check them out at my Picassa site.
