On arrival at Konya from Sultanhani, we visited the Shrine of Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, who was the inspiration for the Whirling Dervishes. It is now the Mevlana Museum. As we left, we met some pupils who were keen to talk to us as they had been sent out to practice their English!

We then had an excellent lunch at a restaurant in a back street not far from the museum, which had won an international award from Safeway Supermarkets(!), before travelling on to Egirdir.
