This is a shot of me(wearing a black t-shirt) on a survey trip to Cappadocia, the central region of Anatolia, with my students and my colleague professor Nilgun Anadolu Okur, who all came from Temple University in Philedelphia for a five-week Summer School programme in Turkey.

Your words are like that of an Apollo temple oracle, Aphrodite.
Please tell me how you managed to invent yourself

Alex, thank you for your kind consideration. I really feel promoted :-):-)





And there you've turned up again, Aphrodite!
The answer to your question is: Both yes and no, for there are many Apollo Temples the biggest of which is at Didyma in Anatolia. Delphi, on the other hand, was renowned for its school for priests who were trained as oracles. Even some priests who dwelled at Didyma originally came from Delphi. Maybe yourself too, in one of your past lifetimes..!

I really like this! I appreciate seeing you in your life! I often wonder about the people behind these great photos on Steve's! Maybe they should start a forum that introduces us to the photographers!

That's right, drewaz
Thrilled with travels between the damp cool of rock cut passages and the dazzling blue skies with hot hot radiating sun distilling the spirits of many a vineyard and ancient site, you see me 100% in life!

Bahadir,

The carved insets in the rock-face remind me so much of a common sight in Japan where small altars are carved into rock faces and miniature Buddhas along with text are created.

Great candid group shot. It speaks wonderfully of the enthusiasm in the their faces.

Aloha
