Very well, Scott!This must be from the Library of Celsusin Ephesos. What other sites didyou visit in Turkey? You must have returned with a considerable catalogue of images anyway..

Speaking aboutthe bairn,if opportunity as well as a lengthy of lifespan allowed, he/she has a long long way to get confused meetingthe remains of civilizations scattered alongno less than 10,000 years' time and over 50.000 sites:-)

You arecorrect Bahidir it was Ephesus in 2005.

How you got that from a cropped photo shows you know your home country extremely well.

I made a visit to the ruin's last year while on holiday.

It was an interesting run up from Khushi Dhasi on a hired Harley and I survived a few near misses on the way upbut Ephesus was worth it.

Thanks Peter, regarding the figures I gave above,I am still happy to own up1/1000 of your kind assumption, so far :-)

That's a very nice photo in which you shot from the top staircases of the still active 2300 year old Theater in Ephesos, once with a a capacity of 25000 spectators. If youwere standing there some 2000 years ago youcould see the Aegean seaatthe end of theroad on the righthandside flanked by the columns...

I hope you could also see the remains of Temple of Artermis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world just across the road which brought you from Kuşadası.

You know, having visited one of the Seven Churchesof Revelation in Anatoliaand most probably Virgin Mary's as well, you're a pilgrimafter all !
