Maude (Quebec) and Mikael (Finland) met at my hostel in Antalya, Turkey. They decided to take a night bus to Göreme, Cappadocia. I invited myself along.
One night they had the crazy idea we barbecue in the hoodoos.
We walked over at dusk.
This was the very first eroded monument we had visited on arrival. Seemed an appropriate place to cook.
First … enjoy the sunset.
Next … try to get the fire going in a cave. (For all my hiking I’m still terrible at lighting campfires.)
It was a bit of a comedy. But eventually they had sausage, chicken skewers, onions and peppers cooking. We drank wine and some kind of horrible Finish liquor they use to interrogate prisoners.
Maude and Mikael headed to northern Turkey. But I really enjoyed the week we spent together. The three of us are all travellers at heart. Maude had given up everything at home to teach French in a mountain village in Morocco. Michael strikes me as an entrepreneur, traveling until he decides what business venture to launch.
