Travel Tip: Go early in the morning before it gets

too hot  and crowded.  Choose a tour

that drops you off up above the ruins

so you can meander down through them and

back to the shady markets where all the tour buses park.

A street scene towards evening in Kusadasi, I wish we

could have stayed longer here. The locals have

excellent english so they can joke around and

have fun with you while battering…

Turkey was also deserves a special mention

as one of the cleanest

and most welcoming country’s.
