Oh dear...(Mykonos, Patmos, Kusadasi/Ephesus)

9.27....I think

As I lay in my cruise ship bed tonight I'm wondering....

"How many kids have peed in this bed? How many drunk adults...?"

I have a thing with beds. They have to be clean, they have to be neat, and they have to be MINE!" I hate sleeping in a foreign bed. Ask my husband. It's an issue on any overnight thing we have. Even in a really nice hotel with a really nice bed. I hear they don't wash the comforters, like, ever.


But today was amazing. The beautiful island of Mykonos. We ate some yummy food at Nikos and walked the island. We didn't make it to the side with the huge old windmills, but we did see Petros the famous pelican. He waltzed through Nikos in the patio during our dinner. Really weird actually. Have you ever seen a pelican? In real life? They're gianormous!! He was probably 2 1/2 feet tall, at least. Maybe 3.

Ok, in the spirit of Petros, time for Angry Birds before bedtime.

Wish me luck in my questionable bed with the really questionable mattress.

9.28 (Patmos/Kusadasi, Turkey/Ephesus)

This morning we went to the island of Patmos where John received the Revelation from God. It was way cool....we went through the cave where John supposedly was at the time of his writing. There's a church built over it now (of course) and a monastery along the cliffside.

But the real gem came when we went to Kusadasi, Turkey. Also known as the ancient city of Ephesus. We walked the streets where ruins lay of a once bustling and thriving city.

2 theaters in this city, one holding around 25,000 people. The larger one is most likely where Paul was taken in Acts 19. You'll have to wait for those pictures....

I've started a new project here on our adventures, a notebook of pencil rubbings....see....

Mom thought of it the other day after we left the Acropolis (so far my favorite still).

Tomorrow is the island of Rhodes.....to be continued.....
