I met Rosie and Patrick from the U.K. while visiting the famed Outdoor Museum, a World Heritage site. A Byzantine monastic settlement, the monks had time to paint their caves.
We drank some wine at sunset point overlooking Göreme.
Then I recommended we go for a nice dinner — traditional Turkish food of this region called Testi.
A mixture of meat and vegetables cooked in a clay pot or jug over fire (testi means jug in Turkish). The pot is sealed with bread dough or foil and is broken when serving.
They were half way complete a cycling trip from England to China. Next up is Iran which they feel will be the best section of all.
Goal is to get home in time for Christmas.
