The Flying Carpet
Cappadocia

Faruk is a well known carpet dealer in Uchisar, specialized in Flying Carpets. He offers a wide range of different models for all purposes. This is a prototype for the city, especially for business people. It needs very little space and the consumption of energy is extraordinary low. Everybody knows that Flying Carpets consume a lot of ash from the tobacco of the famous oriental Nargile (=hookah). Recent secret researches enabled Faruk to produce a Flying Carpet that runs with used coffee powder - perfect for everyone in an office. Future tests will show its performance with different coffees like Turkish Mocca, Italian Espresso or French Cafe au Lait. All we can say up to now is, that it doesn't fly with instant coffee. For the tea drinkers I can say, there's no reason to desperate. The researches started with first positive results.

More About Cappadocia

Cappadocia is a part of central Turkey. Eruptions of several volcanoes (e.g. Erciyes Dag, Hasan Dag) had covered the area with tuff. Erosion dug valleys and created an uncountable number of different shaped rocks. The tuff's ability to store water made the valleys much more fertile than the higher surroundings. After the arrival of the first people, they soon started to dig caves into the soft stone. By the time they developed the ability to dig cities into the underground with tunnels of several kilometers. A sophisticated pipe- and tunnel-system cared for fresh air and water, to enable the people to hide from enemies for a long time. In the 5th century hermits started to settle in the valleys and to paint their caves. In the next centuries more and more hermits and monks arrived and a rich cave-architecture with colourfull wallpaintings developed. The most famous are the churches of Goereme and the Peristrema Valley (=Ihlara Valley) between Ihlara and Selime. Today thousands of tourists from all over the world are visiting the area.
