Had a really pleasant week-and-a-half break in Turkey. Went from Istanbul to Cappadocia to Safranbolu and back again to Istanbul passing Ankara located in between the three on each transit. All three towns were awesome in their own ways and the reception received from the locals (on seeing a group of young, Asian/Black, visibly practising Muslims) in the masjids and market places of each of the three places especially beautiful. There was something about Safranbolu though out of the three which really filled me with a sense of serenity. Some pics from the trip uploaded to my YouTube account here, here and here.
