More Turkey Anyone?

I think I downloaded a few more shots of Turkey yesterday....if I can find them I will post them.    The top shot is of some amazing    hot spring baths which have formed natural pools among the limestone stalagmites (or is it stalactities?)   When we visited the weather was very dry so the pools were scant but the terrain is really            amazing.   We met this  incredibly beautiful calico cat among the ruins of Finiki I believe.   And the squirrel  I met somewhere along the way  even though I did not    have a peanut in any pocket.       Dammit, I had one more set of pics but I cannot locate them right now so I will just send these off and follow up later.      No, that is a lie.....I have located them, but somehow they got zipped and      blogger does not seem to have the technique to deal with that so I will have to download them again being sure that no zippers are anywhere around.  Sob.                                                                                                               


  1. Pakkamule..I think.
    Turkish friends tell me that the site is now so degraded that they have built a 'falsey' alongside to prevent further damage.

  2. Interesting shots. Hang in there with the techie stuff.

  3. Stalagmites, with a g, grow up from the ground.

    Stalactites, with a c, creep down from the ceiling.

    That's the only way I ever remember.

    I agree, nice shots.

  4. Lo, Do you know how to unzip files? It's not too complicated. Scream if you need help.

  5. I love that you have a picture of a squirrel from Turkey. I don't know why I do. I just do.

  6. Turkey is very, very high on my list of places to visit...
