      Thank you, Holger! Yes, you've caught very well my desire to take video about almost every landscape I saw in Goreme!

    The balloon ride was a highlight of our time in Cappadocia. Reputable companies refuse to fly in bad weather and refund their clients. It's up to the client to do their homework. Our flight was absolutely fabulous.

    Beautiful pages Sergey! Goreme looks fascinating. I'm surprised that the balloons took off in that weather!

    Fascinating churches these are! Ahh, waking up with Turkish music and your Goreme is wonderful :-)) This all looks like fairy tale land :-) And oh my, you were indeed lucky for having not booked the balloon ride!

    It's been a dream of mine for many years to visit the churches of Cappadocia - virtual tours like yours will have to do for a while yet! Thanks Sergey. leyle

    Looks like an interesting part of the plane. Wouldn't mind trying a balloon ride :), although not in rain & snow.

    Yes, the balloon rides are ideal only with good weather. I didnt have problem waking up early because then I had all day for my explore. Even, the daily tours start after 9:30, All the travel agents and the balloon companies cooperate :))

    Loved the panoramic view of the Goreme Valley and the Church built into the Rock. Were any of the rock restaurants called "Hard Rock"? hehe!
