Cappodocia to Beysehir

Visited a Caravanassi in Sultanhani which was amazing. One could see the indoor and outdoor areas that both animals and people stayed and in the centre of the walled area was a mosque. IMG_5753IMG_5746IMG_5734As we arrived at the caravanassi, the mayor of Sultanhani came over and introduced himself to us, inviting us to have tea with him. This was delightful and photos were taken as he gave each car a small town banner and photos were taken of him with the cars.IMG_5771IMG_5728

We then drove into Konya through pretty countryside where we visited the mausoleum of another famous poet. Quite elaborate but interesting.IMG_5814IMG_5812IMG_5801

Arriving at Beysehir, we were impressed with how pretty the town was on the lake. Sunset was magnificent and a stroll before and after dinner made a great ending to a busy day.IMG_5832IMG_5824IMG_5862IMG_5842

Wine and more architecture

Wine and More Wine – OleBilbao OLD and NEW Monday dawned sunny and warm and we headed down to the Guggenheim Museum, even though it is closed we wanted to relish the slick titanium skin, contrasted against the smooth pale limestone blocks. Everything glistened in the bright morning sun, reflections of the curved surfaces bounced off the water surrounding the metal walls and the metallic sculptures in the forecourts around the Guggenheim. Did you know that every surface in the building is curved and there are no straight lines thus emphasising the organic flowing lines of this magnificent Frank Gehry masterpiece Tomorrow we’ll visit this amazing museum along with our Silk Road companions Pat and David who we are travelling with around Spain and Portugal in our trusty MGs. Hop on and off buses have always been a favourite and quick way of acquainting ourselves with a city. We cruised around the narrow streets enjoying the views from the top deck. We were diverted by police a few times into the back streets because of a rally of thousands of people marching along the main thoroughfare of the city. Red, white and Green flags and banners waving, fire crackers exploding, releasing clouds of smoke. How We hopped off a The Mercado de la Ribera one of the largest fresh food markets in Europe and we arrived just in time for some Pintxos which we enjoyed with a beer and Sangria. So many delicious sweet and savoury munchies to choose from – what a treat!
