Going to Göreme This Afternoon

I'm in Sivas now, waiting to get a bus this afternoon to Göreme, in Cappadocia, the land of weird rock formations and caves.

Sivas was just a convenient stopover on the way from Samsun to Cappadocia, because there is a train (a very slow one) from Samsun that goes to Sivas, and there is another train from Sivas to Kayseri, which is near Cappadocia.  But, the Sivas - Kayseri train runs at inconvenient times (like, in the middle of the night) so I am going to just take the bus.  Buses work really well in Turkey.

The nearly empty train from Samsun to Sivas.  

Sivas has some nice Seljuk architecture and some nice places to sit outside and look at the architecture.  But, that's about it.  For some reason it's full of places to get really nice sweets and pastries, but very few places to get a decent meal.  I guess everybody must just eat at home.  It is also very conservative and religious.
