As with detailed posts, I’m quite far behind but I will continue to post simply what we are currently doing on this daily itinerary. I will continue to post on this post as I have time.
Morning: Meli picked us up at 10:00. She took us to a mosk on the outskirts of a town called Secuk. She taught us about Islam. She talked about the five pillars and her opinion of the religion.
For lunch we went into Selcuk to a restaurant with Manti.
Afternoon: A carpet shop to see how carpets are made and buy one.
Morning: We went to the Ephesus Museum. Meli talked to us about the history of Turkey. She talked about Ephesus and its purpose. It turns out that there were four Ephesus structures built. When seeing the museum Meli would take an object and put it in context. She told an imaginative story about everything.
Lunch: For lunch we ate at Meli’s family farm. Her sister and her husband were there. They cooked for us and served us a typical Turkish lunch.
