Dinner and dervishes

sunny 62 °F

Dinner was another extravaganza. We were driven to the Saruman Caravanserai, built on the Silk Road in the 13th century. The domed inner chamber served as a dance/prayer floor for dervishes who whirled for 45 minutes. The outer chamber had been covered with a canvas roof overlaid with thousands of lights. Following a marvelous meal, we fell into bed. (Remember we left at 7:00 this morning for our flight and climbed all over the Goreme monasteries this afternoon. And tomorrow morning we will be awakened at 4 am for a hot air balloon ride.)
Love, H&B

Sufi dancers are amazing- saw them in Istanbul. It is an arduous way to be in touch with the Divine.
