Arrived in Kusadasi this afternoon after a ridiculous day.
Friday in Goreme and Kapadokya was very cool, old historical shit, an underground city, etc., definitely interesting stuff. Didn't do much on Friday night as we tried to catch up on some sleep. I found some crap beers in Goreme to bring back to the hotel.
Saturday was awesome, my uncle's wife's family hosted us for a delicious breakfast, tons of breads, homemade sausage, 5 different homemade jams....an "amped-up" version of the traditional breakfast. Women served the guests and the men of the family ate with us along with 2 grandmothers. Reception at night was different, lots of traditional Turkish dancing, and they seemed to enjoy our American dancing as well.
The roads in these old towns are so narrow, and a lot of the time there's no street signs. It took us literally 2-3 hours to find our hotel in Kusadasi. Beautiful setting right on the Aegean Sea. I'll have to take some pics from my hotel window, cool view.
One thing I have been disappointed with is the food. I didn't know a ton about it to begin with, but not much has wowed me so far. The tea and coffee are great and some other foods have been decent.
