Apparently this is a sign to direct travellers to the brothel

More ruins

The celsus library, restored from the ground up like a big 3D jigsaw puzzle (ages 3 and up)



More ruins at Ephesus

Recent restorations


A restored tile path

Can't remember hardly any of these people's names. At a cafe near Ephesus ruins.

This is crossing the dardanells on an overnight bus on the way back to Istanbul.
It was early in the morning, foggy and the water was increadibly calm.

Again, very peaceful

Back in Istanbul. Inside the Aya Sophia



Ash taking a photo in the Aya Sophia. Ash and I went and saw the sights in Istanbul.
The girls had left us to continue further south from Selcuk.

Still inside the Aya Sophia
