This “camel” was formed by the erosion of soft stone from volcanic eruptions that occurred millions of years ago. It appears to be looking across the landscape from its location in central Turkey. Cappadocia has been inhabited since B.C. and has been home for Christians, Jews and Muslims over the centuries. It is a popular tourism region and UNESCO World Heritage site. Cappadocia is a representation of Turkey as much has changed and much remains constant. Turkey is neither entirely European or Asian; entirely modern or old world but always beautiful, unique, fascinating and rich in history.
I would like to nominate Jayne Gorman (of jaynegorman.com) and the girls of gogirlfriend.com.
Thanks Kay. Cappadocia, such an interesting place. A worthy choice to represent Turkey. Over to the girls!
