Cappadocian Jandarma

A photo of a Jandarma, the Turkish word for police post, high in the hills outside Göreme, Turkey. This was probably a Roman tomb carved centuries ago into a hoodoo, rock formations which are locally known as “fairy chimneys”. Imagine walking through a forest of these spires – that’s Cappadocia. Captured with an Olympus C770-UZ.

Steve Smith inherited the wanderlust and has always needed to see what’s around the next corner. His college days were spent enjoying many memorable (and cheap) forays into Mexico sleeping under the stars. Today these excursions are typically press trips and hotels, but gathering unique experiences by getting to know places and people rather than observing as tourists is still their approach to travel. After numerous journeys to North/Latin/South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, he believes this is the true way to experience different cultures.
