Nigde Fort 

After spending the night at Nigde for much needed rest, we visited Nigde Fort which used to serve as a jail in the republican era. The fort was completely restored in 2007.  

Since it is on a hill, it has become a popular spot for locals and tourists to sit and dine and look over the city.

We left Nigde and headed to the Turkish-Syrian border. We  crossed the border and drove all the way to Damascus. It was about 700 kilometres from Nigde to Damascus... definitely one my longest drivers.

We will stay in Damascus for two nights and then get ready to cross Jordan and do a good distance in Saudi.
