It looks like you’re walking on snow but it’s warm! Hot spring water rich in calcium carbonate has been flowing over this mountain under the ancient Roman city of Hierapolis for centuries and the result is a white mountain with hot streams and terraced pools. Aya enjoyed it the most, finding hot and cold pools and bathing under warm waterfalls.
Visiting Ephesus is surreal. It’s like stepping wayyyyy back in time to the Greco-Roman era and getting a bit of a snapshot of what life was like. The magnificent library, the amphitheater, even the public latrines! For some reason I love the ancient monuments with Greek text. I have no clue what they say, but am fascinated by the public displays of art and language.
