Google Pamukkale if you have never heard of it!

sunny 39 °C

The second half of the road trip has taken us inland (after learning about Turkish toll roads,) to the ruins of Heirapolis at the town of Pamukkale. The Romans built Heirapolis as a resort town around calcium and sodium rich hot springs at the top of a pretty good sized hill. From the roadside it looks like a ski resort because the waters have been flowing for thousands of years and spreading the minerals in the water across the hillside. The ruins and the natural formations are equally breath taking. This time we waited until late in the day, until the buses were loading up, before we started our hike.

450 kms and two amazing ruins, we are wiped out....time for a nap before we head back to Bodrum in the morning. This weekend we are headed back to Istanbul to see some of Colin's friends from university compete in the world senior freestyle wrestling championships. It is an Olympic qualifying event and the national sport of Turkey, so it should be a pretty good show.
