We went to Ephesus, another ancient city being unearthed as is Pompeii

A modern day turtle in the midst of the relics
The mosaic work

The Terrace Houses, like today's attached townhomes, built on a
hill thousands of years ago are being reconstructed piece by piece.

The theater seated 24,000

We went to a rug factory where all the rugs are handmade.
Silk rugs are made from these silk worm cocoons.

Spinning the silk
         The rugs at this particular place are made with double knots.  Interested in making one?
