Wow it was nearly 100 F in the nonexistent shade. Good thing he could get under canopy covering the archeological site. Well present. Well explained

I stumbled across this tour and given I'm enthralled with the Turkish Netflix series, The Gift, which features this ancient site, I was thrilled to visit and learn its story. Thank you for making the 1000+ km trip to show us.
