2018 Eastern Mediterranean Trip - Day 38, Aegean Ruins Day

Out on the road for serious exploration of ruins. Anatolia, the peninsula that is Asian Turkey, is one of the cradles of civilization and has been a crossroads for nations and cultures for millennia. Over the next 5 days we are going to seeing a swath of ruins so hopefully you will not get into ruin overload. Also because of the horrible internet here, it is taking forever to upload pictures. It has taken me from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM to get these uploaded AND the only place I can do it is outside in a common area. So forgive me if I don't have time to put in all the proper place names.

Basically we went to three locations. The first is a smaller city that happens to be fairly well preserved. The second was Miletus, well know and famous, but with the exception of its theater, less well preserved. The final place is a former temple to an oracle of Apollo considered one of the greater oracles of the classic Greek period.  Here we go

Arriving at our first stop
A well preserved Greek theater, definitely different in style from the Roman Theaters
