Mediterranean Cruise, Port 4: Ephesus and Kusadasi, Turkey.

Next up was Turkey. We docked in the port city of Kusadasi, the gateway city for many attractions, but we only had one in mind, Ephesus.  An Ancient Greek city that was home to more than 50,000 people, Ephesus is home to the famed Temple of Artemis which remains one of The Seven Wonders Of the Ancient World.  It is also home to the amazing Library of Celsus. We hopped on the local bus from the station in Kusadasi and spent the day walking around with the souls of a lost empire. Simply amazing.

Once back in Kusadasi, we wandered the streets and had some apple tea, courtesy of the barber that Todd dared to let near his head with some sort of flaming ball that he bounced on his earlobes to singe the hair away. In truth, it was the best haircut I have ever seen on him. He even singed my earlobes too!
