Ephesus - From Istanbul we travelled south to the ruins of Ephesus and the nearby town of Selcuk.  Ephesus is one of the great ruined Greek built cities, having been founded sometime between 1000 to 1500 BC.  The ruined city is spread over a reasonably large area with a numerous types of buildings, temples and theatres to explore.  We spent a best part of a day walking through the area, with some of the highlights including the library, theatre and Artemis ttemple (one of the seven ancient wonders of the world).


We stayed in the nearby town of Selcuk, and found a really friendly run hotel, with a lady who cooked amazing local food.  Selcuk was unique because it had ancient pillars in the town centre (from ruined buildings) that storks nested on, so we watched these big birds come back at night while enjoying a drink in the town square.
