We had a nice dinner outside on the patio, overlooking the Aegean, and a belly dancer, too!We drove many hours to the port where the A. Candan was waiting for us. Larry and I got probably the best room on the gulet, with a little sitting area as well as a big, comfortable bed. I'm thinking the next few days will be the best part of the trip. It's beautiful on the water, surrounded by islands, the weather is very comfortable, and I even went swimming off the boat this morning. We're going to go on a hike on shore this afternoon (in about an hour). `
Saturday morning, at 6 AM, an annoying beep began somewhere, woke us up and sent us scurrrying to our electronic devices to see if one of them was responsible, but the beep was from somewhere else, and persisted for fifteen minutes or so.
But for the good and exciting news, we had a wonderful visit to Ephesus, and ancient city on a hill in picturesque ruins. The weather was fine, not too hot, and the crowds were manageable. I took lots of pictures which I'll try to post later when I have more reliable internet access.
