Ephesus Turkey

I'm trying to plan a two week tour of Turkey in May.

As I research Turkey, one source says go see Ephesus after Istanbul.

As I look at the Ephesus pictures online, they seem disturbingly familiar.

 I look back at the blog and see nothing. However, I have a May 2007 Kusudi, Turkey photo folder which I never blogged about..

We landed in a cruise ship  at Kusudai in May 2007 and took a bus to Ephesus.  If you like Greek and Roman ruins, you would definitely like this place.

For me the most interesting photo op was this bug.

Anyway, here is the long delayed Ephesus blog.

We shall not pass that way again.

 The library of Celsus is an ancient Roman building in Ephesus, Anatolia, now part of Selçuk, Turkey. It was built in honor of the Roman Senator Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus[2][3] (completed in 135 AD) by Celsus' son, Gaius Julius Aquila (consul, 110 AD). Celsus had been consul in 92 AD, governor of Asia in 115 AD, and a wealthy and popular local citizen

The Ephesus Coliseum is fairly impressive in comparison to the stones piled up by American Indians in Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde...In the end it is all just old piles of rock...
