Much to learn about interior design in Turkey!

It is a cold. cloudy day in Northeast Georgia. It seems like it would
be a good time to remember back to this summer and a warm 81 
degrees and a sunny day in Turkey.

Our first stop was the house of the Virgin Mary.This is on Mt. Koressos. 
It is believed that this was where the Virgin Mary spent her last days.
The waters here, that flow from the Fountain of Our Lady, are believed 
to be holy waters and able to heal and cure the sick.

Our next stop was the Ancient City of Ephesus. This is 
Turkey's most significant excavation site. 

These are the public baths in the arena. Modesty 
was not a word/feeling they used. It was said
that a band played, so as to drowned out any 
 unpleasant sound effects!

We next visited the Terrace Houses for the very rich.
It was fascinating to see that they had created hot and
cold running water and used mosaics to decorate the
floors and walls of their homes.
More about the terrace homes HERE

After we left the terrace houses we went into the market 
place to shop. I love their sign - truth in advertising!

Our lunch was in Kusadasi and was a meal of all local food items.
Next to where we dined was an rug vendor. We had a 
tour there and one of our ladies came home with
a beautiful runner. 

That was our visit in Turkey and we will be moving on to 
Santorini and Athens for our next stop! 
Back soon!

  1. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
