Effe is a wonderful young guide in Goreme, Turkey. He just got married 20 days ago. We went on two tours with Effe, his knowledge of the area was amazing, he doesn’t just learn the history, he is a local boy and has that passion that makes it special when he is talking. Yes, I am going to do a little advertising for him.

There is a story (true or untrue) that in the past a man has to make a pot and a perfect lid to be a suitable husband. Efe’s attempt at pottery when we were there was not showing signs of perfection. It was all in good fun of course.
