    A very informative page. Interesting tip about the cost of apartments! Yes, let us move to Turkey! The Turkish dog does not look so friendly, almost growling, isn't it ?

    Interesting to read about the caravansaries in Anatolia. When we read about caravans, we usually don't think about what facilities they might have had for spending the nights. And those nearby apartment buildings that only cost 1/10 of the Moscow level!

    I'm glad you found a 4-legged friend on your travels. Never been to Konya but heard about it. They must have trams there too. Great sights!
