Then it's off to midtown for a little shopping and off to the airport......
A perfect end to a perfect vacation!
I have waaaaaay more to post about Turkey, but it just had to wait!
Look into the valley of pigeon holes - limestone caves made for pigeons by the locals to make it easy to collect pigeon droppings to use as fertilizer as the soil in that area was not great for planting crops. We were on our way to the outside museum of goreme where early Christians built homes and churches into the limestone to hide the practice of their religion while it was still illegal. But more on those structured later. Here we found a tree loaded with the Turkish good luck charm of the blue eye. It was beautiful in the light....,
purchase one here, but it was really hard not to!!!

We just gave this pair of vintage wing-back chairs a do-over......what amazingly cheerful fabric! (it's an outdoor fabric) I can hardly believe the before and after pictures - such a dramatic change! Stop by the shop and take a peek...as always, the espresso is on us!
