Then it was time to do what we had come to Turkey for, exploring!!
First drove to see fairy chimmeneys. Fairy chimmenys were made when Mount Erc erupted thousands of years ago. Then the lava dried into rock-like substance called Tuff. Over time, the tuff eroded, and the rock structures left behind are the chimmeneys
After that, we stopped at a monastery that had been carved into a rock formation in the 9th century. It was a place where more than 200 monks had lived at one time. Inside the church, we go to see the remains of many frescoes.
After a mini-tour of the church, it was time to go back to the hotel and relax before dinner.
We had dinner at a place called the Mikro Restaurant. The food was great, but it was good to be back at the hotel, as we were all tired after a long day.
