Today the teachers of Adana took us to the beautiful region of Cappadocia, which is a UNESCO world heritage site. We were up at 5.30a.m UK time and had a long 4 hour journey. The Turkish teachers, who love to sing and dance, actually started dancing on the bus. Their excuse was ‘ If you don’t play, the road never finishes!’
The underground city was part of a labyrinth of tunnels which connected many different underground cities . Some were 20 km away from each other but still connected by the tunnels. The tunnels were built to hide from enemies in the distant past. They were amazing.
We had our lunch in an underground cave and then did some more exploring of the wonderful ‘fairy chimneys, which are natural rock formations which had been carved out centuries ago to make churches and houses for people to live in. The journey back was another 4 hours but we were all so tired that we fell asleep and before we knew it we were back in Adana. It was 9.30 at night and we had all had a truly amazing day.
