First, a shot of the main street in Ephesus.
A fountain dedicated to Emperor Domitian.
The Library - such an impressive building!! I managed to trip over the front steps and fall off. Sigh.
I love this shot. It was such a beautiful day!
The theater where St Paul preached (and also where Elton John and Sting, among others, have performed). I like St Paul more though.
The house where Mary allegedly spent her last days with St John.
The surroundings of the house - it was such a peaceful place.
The only column left of the 122 that made up the Temple of Artemis. It's actually made up of all the different pieces though!
The view from my hotel room in Kusadasi.
The view from the little village where my guide took me. Most of the villagers work in the fields.
Some of the pillars left of the Basilica of St John the Evangelist. This is actually the tomb of St John, though his relics have long been removed and taken to Europe.
The Basilica looks down on the mosque that was built in the 14th century when the Ottoman Empire conquered Turkey.
A shot of the tombs in the mountain side where the Christians buried their dead during the Roman persecution.
Just a little snap shot of the views in the area. To make you jealous :)
I'll post more about my time going to Troy and Gallipoli today, but tonight I have to get some rest. I have an early flight to Barcelona tomorrow!
