After hike had a day back in Trabzon for a shower and a good night sleep before we had to catch our massive (17hour) bus ride to Istanbul. Made good use of the day and went and visited the Sumela Monstary, which is a must see if you make it out to Trabzon.
The view of the Monstary is very impressive set in the cliffs in a huge valley, and the church inside has some amazing ancient paintings on the roof.
Then it was back to Trabzon for a kebab dinner (loving the 0.75 euro cent chicken kebabs!) and onto the night bus for a beautiful sunset.
