Thank Allah, finally my friends and i, 11 people in this trip, have been brought by the willingness of Allah to see and witness the greatness of His Almighty how these things could happen on His earth. I could imagine that this complexity of creation could be seen by my bare eyes.

After our trip in Pamukkale we went back to the bus station of this town where we were dropped in in the morning. We managed ourselves by taking a shower in a hotel. Our leader ajarn Muhammad Rafee negotiated with the tour agency that organized our trip to Pamukkale to open a room for all 11 peiple to take the first shower here in Turkey. This was only a few hours room renting. Thank Allah this was the first taking shower for me after 3 consecutive days nin stop journey fron Thailand to Turkey. I took almost 20 minutes of taking a shower here and made a change of my cloth including underwear. It made me fresh and felt better even we got tired. The tour agent sent dropped us at the bus station in town. Everyting was arranged by our our tour leader, ajarn Muhammad Rafee. He was deserved to be a tour leader as he could managed ptofessionally.

We arrived at the bus stop about 6 pm and then we went to have a dinner at a shop next to the bus station. Rifht after that we prayed Maqrib and Issa ar the bus station. This was not a common practice by Turkish in praying in a corner of the bus terminal. We did it. Everyone has a freedom to pratice and follow our religious rites and exercises. The bus came to the station at 8.30 pm. Every bus we got was very furnished and equipped with facilities. I could observed that Turkish people like to use Mercedez Benz from Germany. The fare was only 65 Turkish Lera (15 Thai Baht is 1 Turkish Lera). Once i got on the bus, i just slept all along the way. You know why? I was so tired from the axtivities of that day. The bua stopped 3 times for peeing or refreshment of the passangers.

We arrived at the bus terminal of Cappadocia at 6.30 am which was the same as stated in the bus schedule. We were welcomed by a tour agent on the bus by hanging a banner Muhammad Rafee’s name. We were happy that everything is well organized. Thanks to our leader.

We were brought to the an office of the tour agent. As it was too early for the trip, we could manage ourselves by goinh to the toilet and having  breakfast. What did i eat, you know? I ordered an omellet with saucage together with tea. It costed me 11 Lera. However, i love it. Since are on the travelling mode we should not expect the ones we are familiar with from our home. I should discover the differences in this world.

The Mercedez Benz mini bus came to pick up our group together with other 5 people on the bus to our destination. After an hour of driving and i was sleeping all along the way, i was shock to see something in front of eyes. I could belelieve my eyes that this is real or i was in the day dream. The splendid geography and spectaculas views made me think my Geography subject when i studied of geography of Europe. You could see the pictures above i attached. It was like a vast valley which was a result of volcano in the past over a hundred thousand of years ago. The stones were eroded by naturual phenomenon like wind and rain waters. The mountain ranks were shaped in different forms designed by the nature. Thus is the natural architecture. Allah knows and can make everything He wishes.

We were guided by a tour guide to the valley by walking down along its small creeks. The walking was about another 3 hours but it filled with happiness and joy. The waether was not bad. I was taking photos because i was astronished from these nice views.

In the mountain, there were houses residing by local people. I tried to talk to them but the communication was broken down because they could not speak English and we could not understand Turkish.
