The tour is going great and we are a small group of 7 who all seem to get along well. Our tour leader Kemet is a doll - she is so full of knowledge and eager to please. As we are pretty well on the go all day with a late dinner all I can do is maybe read a few emails and browse Facebook quickly and crash...no time for blogging or much contact with people online.
We have a free afternoon and I am pretty tired so decided to do a little blog. I hope you appreciate that I am sitting on my bed sideways doing this.
This morning we visited Ephesus which was amazing. The best preserved Roman ruins in the surrounding area. Rain was forecast but luckily it never materialized as it was windy and I can't imagine trying to negotiate that place (and walking on wet marble) in those conditions. I will post more on it later..much later...but here are a few photos...
|The Nike brand got their name from this statue - can you see the Nike logo?|
|Holes in the marble so the chariots would hot slide when it was wet|
Today we went to a place for lunch that makes the local speciality of crepes right in front of you from scratch - I had a spinach, feta and onion one..yum!!
|Spreading the dough and putting the fillings in - the other lady is making Turkish ravioli|
|Into the oven one by one!|
|The finished product which was yummy!|
|Unfortunately even on sports mode my camera could not capture the action. |
