7. Ortahisar, Turkey

Ortahisar, Turkey

This flip flop is a gift from my best friend M. I know that he was bought in Ortahisar in Turkey. He represents a specific landscape of Cappadocia (an ancient region of Anatolia) with the Fairy Chimneys (tall, thin spire of rock) which look like a huge mushrooms to me. Hot-air ballooning is very popular there so it is a reason why the baloon also appeared on this flip flop. It's the only flip flop I have which is decorated with the eye of the prophet although I have a few flip flops from Turkey.
