Faces of Turkey.
A grandfather(?) and his granddaughter flying a kite at Pigeon Valley, Cappadocia.
A grandmother(?) and her grandson at a lake below the Pamukkale hills.
A couple of shop assistance at a nut shop at a rest stop, between Ankara and Istanbul.
A group of school children at the Ataturk Memorial, Ankara.
School children outing in Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
Grasshopper at Ephesus
Lizard at Ephesus
Spider at Ephesus
Butterfly at garden in Mother Mary's house
And these are sure Turkish Delights, not the edible kind but just as sweet.
A note for Malaysian travellers. Turkey is currently the cheapest European destination for package tours and it is certainly best value for your money since you get the best of both Eastern and Western cultures. What more with MAS now flying direct from KLIA to Istanbul, the hassle of transit in the Middle East is now gone.

My next stop was the Basilica Cistern which was built as a vast underground water storage tank. Quite a fascinating sight with the eerie lighting and shimmering water.
