Konya to Ephesus

A few pictures from the rest of my trip in Turkey. This is going to be a short and sweet post. I'm sitting in a cafe in wifi-starved Santorini, running out the precious little time I have on this connection.



Visiting Chata hoyuk, an archeological site near Konya dated to the point at which humans first moved from nomadic lifestyles to settlements.





Getting in a whirling dervish show in Konya - for FREE! We happened upon an admission-free annual cultural event in the city.



Soaking in the hot springs of Pammukale. This was a bit of a let down for me. As evidenced in the picture, it would be a really beautiful place, if only you could actually see the landscape underneath all the tourists.

The ancient city of Hierapolis stands above the hot springs.




Visiting Ephesus in Western Turkey, another ancient Roman city.







A short stop to the city of Kusadasi on the coast. And a view of the USS Bataan, which is stationed at their port.
