Day 4- Hierapolis of Pamukalle

Day 4

“Gew-nine-dinn” means good morning in Turkish.

We headed to Heirapolis, was an ancient Greco-Roman city in Pamukalle.  It took us 5 hours from Kusadasi to Pamukalle.
It was fascinating to come here to see the landscape, the 200 meters high cliff covering with a white frozen salt.  The scenery was magnificent. 

There are a few hot springs, last time have been used as spa.  According to Ali, he said that majority wealthy Roman during the old days would come here to soothe their ailments, with many of them retiring and dying here.

Hierapolis is a UNESCO world heritage site.

The strong winds and the cool weather did not stop us to walk and enjoy ourselves.

Day 3- Meryem Ana Evi Home

Day 3

“Tar-shah-ku-lar” means thank you in Turkish.

After breakfast, we were brought to a leather shop known as Leatherium Kircilar.  The leather stuffs are very good and high quality and the price is very shocking.  If in your pocket got more than USD1000 and you can buy one.  A nice leather jacket, which bought by 2 guys cost them USD800 each. Wow, I'm totally not buying this leather stuff even I got plan to buy but when I heard about the price. I freeze and my jaw dropped down.

Before that, they organised a runway leather fashion show to entertain us and we enjoyed it.
