|Great trip through ancient Ephesus. Went to Mary's house. Went to the ruins. Very cold and windy. But, great anyway. Had a biblical lunch. We saw how they got silk threads from the cocoons. Very worth the reinjured calf. Ouch.
It was amazying that the ruins are thousands of years old and they have only just begun to uncover what the area truly might have looked like in the past. It was a busy market place at one time (reminds me of the Grand Bazaar). With great architecture and stone/marble carvings.
It was interesting trying to imagine what it would have been like to live and walk these streets thousands of years ago. Traders and craftsman from all of the surrounding areas would come. The wealthy would stroll up and down the walks viewing the latest wares. Not too much unlike how it is today.
