    In Urgup, Turkey we had a memorable travel encounter while walking the streets of Urgup in the geographically whimsical Cappadocia with its fairy towers and underground cities. A group of four elderly men were enjoying tea at a street side cafe and invited us (guide, wife, daughter, and me) to join them. Our guide translated our pleasant exchange while we enjoyed the Turkish tea.
