In Bursa we observed whirling dervish ceremony and the tombs of some Ottoman Sultans. It was also a great place to people watch and just wander the streets.
In the ancient city of Ephesus we got to explore through the parts of the city that have been excavated so far. Only about 20% of the city has been excavated so far, which, when you’re walking those cobblestone streets, seems crazy because this place is HUGE. And it isn’t even half of the city! Ephesus has some crazy historical significance, it’s one of the seven churches cited in the Book of Revelations, the Gospel of John might have been partially written there, the Library of Celsus was the third largest library in the ancient world, rivaling Alexandria, and the Temple of Artemis which is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
