On to Turkey

Not quite enough Greece...we will be back!

I really regret that we didn't "do" the Greek Islands. That trip will defnitely be on the to-do list. We walked around the Ancient Agora, Kerameikos Cemetery, the Temple fo Olympian Zeus, and Hadrians Library. You practically trip over the ancient stuff around here. We accidentally found ourselves in the middle of a GIANT and very crowded swap meet today. And we rode the metro (running today - hooray!) to the end of the line and looked out at the cruise ships in the harbor. Tomorrow we fly to Izmir, Turkey and take a train to the town of Selcuk (that "c" should have a little tail, but I can't find that character!). We're staying in a hostel there for a few days and the directions to find it actually include the phrase, "look for the storks nest on top of the column by the fountain." I really hope that stork is still nesting. From Selcuk we can see the ancient ruins of Ephesus and hopefully go to a beach. Looking forward to Turkey!

Ephesus is wonderful...so glad you will be seeing it. Can't wait to get your take on Turkey and Baylie's on the Grand Bazaar. Keep up the blogs, we love them.

Definitely get a picture of the Hagia Sofia. So jealous, you are seeing so many wonderfully, historic places! I don't know why I didn't put it together before - when you mentioned Ephesus, I realized you're traveling through a lot of Biblical history as well. Awesome!
