Our car and driver turned up right on time and we proceeded to the ruins of Ephesus where we met our guide who would spend the day explaining the history of Ephesus to us. Our first stop was the house where it is believed the Virgin Mary was brought by John the evangelist to whom Jesus entrusted her safe keeping and here she lived out the rest of her life.

I can't believe how well much of the carving has held up over these many years. I can't imagine anything we've built modernly holding up 100 years, let alone nearly 900! From there, we continued to walk up, passing the latrines, bath house, brothel and the Hercules Gate. By this time, there were so ...
