Ancient monuments and shopping


It has been a long couple of days. Early starts and late finishes and I am starting to feel very weary. However, since I am unlikely to visit Turkey again anytime soon I figure I might as well cram in as much as I can.

So itinerary yesterday was Channakale to Troy, Troy to Pergamon, Pergamon to Kusadesi (apologies for any misspellings). Today we went to Ephesus, then to a carpet weaving place, lunch at a traditional restaurant, then Sirence and a leather goods place. Troy, Pergamon and Ephesus are all ancient ruined cities. Sirence is a village established by Greek people, so the architecture is supposed to be completely different from the rest of Turkey. However, like the weaving place and the leather place it mostly seems to be an excuse for shopping.
