A wonderful spot to stay and a good room with a very comfortable King size bed.

I'm going to have to write some drafts and post them all at once when I'm back. The main concern here is that my contact with Dan will be zero to none :( Since we met in March, this will be the first week we haven't spoken. I may have ...
... her friend to have him pick us up and show us the site with a translator who was familiar with the ancient archeology of the area. The rector arrived with a vehicle, a driver and a Ph.D. student that spent part of the day showing us around the city and environs. The hospitality that we have encountered in Turkey has been second to none... and having a personal chauffeur and guide for a good part of the day ...
