      we would ditch high school in izmir, go to ephesus, jump the rusted wire fences, drink cheap wine from the bottle all day and play charades in the amphitheater. there were no tourists those days and the ruins still looked abandoned after the last plague... it is an amazing place and so intact after all those centuries.

About this Blog

Turkey is at the crossroads of the Middle East and Europe, to this day its unique geographic position has brought with it tremendous conflict. It has been occupied by such diverse civilizations as the Hittites, the Trojans, Lyceans, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantine and Ottomans, finally leading to the establishment of the modern Turkish state. In the wake of these periods of occupation, architecture from each has been deposited throughout the country.
