A Little Trip to Ephesus

We were blessed to be able to take a day-trip to the ancient city of Ephesus. It is one of the most excavated Biblical cities, and the amazing part is that only an estimated 10% is uncovered! It was so neat to imagine the lives that people lived there, the people that came through, and the riots that happened.

Another baptistry...

Family picture! We told the cat he could join if he wanted.

A symbol carved in marble on which you can write IXOYE.

It was pretty crowded there...

Ancient public toilets:

The gladiator walk behind the big theater

Afterward we visited a pottery shop and this guy helped Emily make a cool bowl!
