Rose Valley in Goreme

July 17, 2013

We are in Goreme. Its beautiful place to see. Full of rich with little notes of historical sites. You can look up into wikipedia or google about Goreme. Amazing caves, view of tall domes with different layers of colors from water/wind, etc...

Yesterday, we saw an amazing anicent painting of jesus&apostles inside of a 9th century cave church.

Our hostel owner was kind enough to give us a lift to the Rose Valley trail to see the beauty of Goreme! Before we started hike in the Rose Valley trail at around 6pm. A deaf man saw us signing and came up to us and signed in Turkish Sign Language. He was kind to guide us and showed us the best view to take pictures while the sun goes down. After we saw the coolest art work of christian (before muslim world came up). We were offered with cup of apple tea by his friend, who owned the cafe near the cave with an amazing christians art work. When the sun was about to go down. We started hike down. Wow! It feels like I'm in the nature heaven! The deaf man gave us two cups of fresh orange juice. We chilled out abit...

It was getting abit cold and I had a long sleeve pull over:) We knew we would need to walk back to the town where we stayed at. It would take us about an hour to get there. The deaf man offered us a ride on the scooter. But: Only one of us at a time on the scooter... heh.... Sharon made me go first and I gave her the small knife for safety because she would be alone in the nature with no light... Quite remotely... I was abit nervous because I do not know the deaf guy that well. Yes, we know we are not smart about that. However, I jumped on his scooter and I was in an awe by looking at how the half moon actually glowed on the landscape of beauty and could see the "black shadow of tall curved domes". Fresh air on the road... The deaf man dropped me off nearby the touristy store with full of carpets. He left and rode to get Sharon. Whew, Sharon is back in one piece. We took the deaf man out for dinner to show our gratitude for helping us out. He kept telling us that he did not want us to be alone and could end up in any troubles. He invited us to meet other Deaf people tonight for cup of teas.
