One of the characteristics in Cappadocia is having plenty of underground cities. Another characteristics is that it is common people here live in the cave. My first glance of this city reminded me immediately of my childhood Flinstone cartoon.
The biblical city: Ephesus...
Personally it is probably the only city in the world where the man-made beauty is integrated so harmoniously and perfectly into its environment/nature. The backdrop of the turquise Argean Ocean against the white/blue-dotted houses hanging on the jagged caldera are simply astonishing and aesthetic that no other cities can be on par with.
Amazon Medical Mission Trip - my first and hopefully won't be my last medical trip. Amazon River is still as mysterious as before I visited. Its width and length are just unbelievable.
Pamukkale: travertine pools and terraces of the mineral rich hot springs; Hierapolis:the ruined remains of an ancient Greek city built in 2nd BC...
The Holy Bible in Rev: “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it, for the time is near” (Rv 1:3).

A city where the modern and ancient worlds mingled together. A city that taught me to reverence history and to avoid investing my life into building something grandeur here on earth as there is nothing as everlasting on this side of heavens. I don't like the modern Athens, but I do love the history of ancient Athens.
