Cappadocia, Göreme

After four days in Cappadocia we are now going back to Antalya. But on the way back we stopped at two Caravanserais. You can compare a caravanserias to todays motels. Before we leave Göreme the cats want to say goodbye to us.

We was very pleased that they several times a day clean the windows of the bus, taking photographs through dirty windows isn't so fun. This is at our stop in Aksaray.

This is our first visit to a caravanserai, but we have seen them after the roads earlier. The silk and tee roads go through here on the highland and it's was important for the travelers to have some secure accommodation places to stay at.
