    Sergey, amazingly beautiful and different 'natural' rock formations in the Urgup area!! That is quite a variety of Turkish Night dances you managed to see. I hope you were careful with the 'unlimited drinks'!!

    It is a real challenge to build a page on a place that everybody knows and have seen plenty of photos. You succeeded! Your page is fascinating! Your photos of dances are splendid.

    Incredible, Sergey. What a learning experience for me with the historical background, dramatic photos of dervishes, the wedding ceremony, folk dancers, tombs, rock houses, and Fairy Chimneys. Wow.
