Turkey Day Eight – Beehive Houses

beehive-housesThis morning we woke up in the sketchiest hotel yet, Otel Dogu, in Sanliurfa. We got out of there quickly, had a quick breakfast, and hit the road towards Harran.

In Harran, we were struck by how many civilizations had lived there, and how many layers of building were waiting to be uncovered. We also explored traditional rock, brick and adobe beehive houses, and a ten sided citadel.

From Harran, we drove back to Sanliurfa, and spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the bazaar and 12th century Urfa Castle. We had dinner in a restaurant in a huge cave, then walked back to the car for the drive to Gaziantep.

In ‘Antep, we decided to splurge a little and got a nice hotel room with a shower for 90YTL.
