Izmir, Turkey & Our Trip to Ancient Ephesus

Whew...we had to meet up for our excursion to Ephesus at 745am this morning, which we did surprisingly well. We were fortunate enough to have a good tourguide, who led us through the old city, which in its heyday must have been something else. I would love to put some pics on here of our tour, but when I tried to find a free WiFi connection while in port, the computer laughed at me. So those shots will have to wait. After the tour, we did a little shopping, and then were taken to (get a load of this, Adam & Nicole) a Rug making factory to learn all about Turkish rugs. Morocco, look out, Turkey claims to have the "second best silk in all of the world" - so the rugs MUST be good. It was pretty funny, and brought back a lot of memories.
Until I get internet and am able to post some pics, this is all I have to say about Ephesus...tomorrow we port in maybe I'll have better internet luck then.
