... better known as the book of Ephesians in the bible. Both Paul and Luke visited Ephesians and lore has it that Virgin Mary lived the rest of her life out here. It is hard to imagine that we walked some of the same roads that these important people walked. In addition, current excavations date the area to 6000 BC. I can't begin to understand the history this area contains.

Day 10-

Hello from Kusadasi, Turkey. We arrived here around 0900 to yet another beautiful port. Kursadasi is one of the most attractive cities on the Aegean Sea, and is actually a resort town.
