Can you find a place for a pin?
This is a pretty Turkish coastal city with lots of hotels and resorts which are frequented by European vacationers. It is best known for the nearby Greek/Roman city of Ephesus, a city built originally by Alexander the Great before the birth of Christ and rebuilt after earthquakes by the Romans in 6-7 hundred A.D.
Nearby is where supposedly the Virgin Mary lived and I am enclosing a photo of her house.
Other photos are of Ephesus ruins which are only 10%!e(MISSING)xcavated. The pictures are of the Library, the Coliseum, which seated 40,000 and where gladiators fought in Roman times.. There is even a cemetery for gladiators here! And finally, there is a photo of a men?s bathroom from Roman times!!
The city was destroyed again by earthquakes and abandoned. It was rediscovered in 1916 by archeologists.
We were only here half a day and are now off to Istanbul.
Love to all, Granddaddy and Granny Lynne
