Bike And Stairs In Cappadocia by 

Although the lack of bikes in cities like Ankara and Istanbul is surprising, there’s no shortage of them in smaller Turkish towns like Avanos. Bicycles, motorcycles and scooters of every shape, size and color can be found on the street next to bearded old men counting their prayer beads.

This front yard scene was shot on a back street right around the corner from several small pottery workshops. The town of Avanos in Cappadocia is well-known for its small kilns and hand-decorated pottery. The wooden urn at the top of the stairs is probably used for churning ayran, a traditional peasant drink made from sour yogurt.
