Turkey Oct 2008




Carpet makers in Turkey, it was amazing how they make these carpets out of wool & silk. They showed us everything from spinning the silk to weaving the carpets.





















Doing a little walking around Turkey

















Wine factory in Turkey












































On the road to Ephesus
















Beautiful Ephesus













I thought this was so cute!




















Me in Ephesus, nice finger Mom
















A prayer wall by Mary's retirement house














Mary's retirement house they say John built






























Gardens next to Mary's house and a well





























A well where they say people were also baptized

















Ephesus














A stadium where Paul spoke to over 30,000 people. This is the small one that only holds 14,000. Down the road is a big one that held 24,000 but there were many standing so they estimate 30,000 people.
