Egypt & Turkey Part 10: Ephesus and a Fashion show!

Early riser catches the sunrise! Right at the coast of the Aegean Sea, but not before grabbing a bite to eat at our Spa hotel breakfast buffet. A trip to Ephesus,  to the Ancient City of Anatolia Efes, a city famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. We get to see the huge city of Ephesus, sit in the great Temple of Artemis, the huge stadium that could hold over 25,000 people. It was initially used for dramas, but during the Roman era, it was used for gladiator combat. There was so many problems and troubles, that the government used the fights to keep the people occupied and not thinking about all the worries.  

The city of Ephesus was huge and it was a hot day at 36 degrees, we were ready for a break and a delicious, Turkish dish for lunch before heading to a fashion show for a store that creates the most famous and best leather jackets in Turkey, and maker for some of the most well known brands in the world, like Gucci and Vuitton. Of course those jackets and purses didn't have the name brand it yet. But we had the chance to buy any product at cost price, which ranged 200 to 1000 dollars. The staff were friendly, and the products were all amazing!

Check out the pictures below! 


A jumping leap!

We stop for a snack, these are bread with meat or cheese inside. 

Do I look like a statue? Do I blend in? 

I'm reallllllly strong! 

There are soooo many people!

This is a long row of toilets. I don't think I would like to use the toilet with a bunch of people around. 

The Library Celcus

Behind us is the Theatre

Lunch time!
Dessert. Like pudding and fruit.

Some of the people in our tour go to go on stage and try on some jackets and be in the fashion show.
