(NYT52) CAPPADOCIA, Turkey -- Sept. 4, 2007 -- TRAVEL-TURKEY-ADV09 -- Hot-air balloons float above the hills and rock formations of Cappadocia, Turkey on Sunday, August 19, 2007. Spread across the middle of Turkey like a lunar landscape, Cappadocia is home to a bizarre field of anthill-like cones, rock-hewn churches and underground cities where Christians once hid to avoid persecution. It is a spectacular sight and one that has captivated travelers for centuries. An area that has traditionally attracted backpackers and archaeology-minded tourists, Cappadocia is now going upscale and drawing a younger more sophisticated crowd.
