Turkey - An amazing trip!

Blue Mosque

Basilica Cistern (Yerebetan Sarnici)- underground reservoir

where the statue of Medusa's head lies..

Bosphorus - strait that forms part of the boundary between Europe and Asia.

Lunch- Chicken kebab with rice and mashed potatoes

We (together with the bus) rode across the Bosphorus on a ship.

The medusa (blue) eye trinklets

Interesting packaging

Troy- Replica of the wooden Trojan horse

Pergamon - Acropolis


View from the bus

Selcuk - Ephesus - House of Virgin Mary

Interesting snail. Initially I thought it was a fossil, but on closer look, realised that it was alive!

Ephesus- one of the largest archeological sites in existence. Amazing 1.5hr walk!

This used to be one of the top 3 largest library

Cotton Castle
formed by calcareous hot spring waters flowing down the mountains.
