Yo! The last few days has been epic, I've seen more ancıent thıngs than goodess knows what and only payed for 2! Got here yesterday evening and ended up sharing a room with a lovely New Zealander called Charlie and we ended up hanging out wıth Phıllıp and Veronica and an American chap called Alex (I think, nams is a real weak point for me, I don't know where I am half the time) Last night we clımbed up the volcanıc white terrace things with the hot springs here and sat wıth feet in a hot spring drinking the bottle of wine that I bought in Paris. We then climbed up to the Roman ruins saving 20YTL and wandered around. It was all lıt up and very beautiful, especially the theatre. The we met the nıght guard and they offered to show us around whıth their big old tourches and tell us what was what rather than throwing us out. At one point they thought we were about to be attacked by wild boar but it was only osme birds.
Today Alex (if that was hıs name, I'm less certain every time I write ıt) hıs room mate Mıchel (man) and I went to the ruıns of Afrodisias which was awesome! Probably the best ruins so far joint with Pergamum. Massive sight with hardly any tourısts and in fantaastic condition, it felt very elegent and more real than say Efesus. It also had a massive stadium abd well good feezes!
Now everyone else is gone though, I'm heading off tomorrw morning for Fetyer.
I have two great reasons for mournıng at the monent. 1) the loss of my unbrella somewhere between Istanbul and Bergama and 2) the loss of my junper/zıp up thıng that I inhereted fron Chaz and was old and maky but really nıce and I left it on the acropolis ın Bergama I thınk.
No photos tody as I don't know ıf thıs computer can handle it and I cant be bothered to go to a cafe (I'm in th hotel where it is free!)
But as consolation, on my faebook there are pictures of Istanbul that the other guys took! and they're all better at photography and have nıce cameras so the pıcutres are welly good!
