Shopping in Izmir

After we left Ephesus, our bus headed to a few places to shop.  I'm sure they were all putting on a show for us, and the prices were certainly higher than I was willing to pay- but it was nice to see real Turkish stuff being made.

This is the pottery before it is glazed and fired.

These guys put on quite a show explaining how Turkish pottery is the best in the world.

It is definitely beautiful!

These were like cookie jars.

And clocks.

On the way back to the boat we passed this, but I don't know what it was.

There were many hills and valleys along the way.  I can see why so many people fought for this land.

I snapped a picture of the ship right before we arrived back at the port.

We changed and then headed to the lobby to listen to some music before dinner.

Mdx loved these stairs with crystals in them.

The kids were ready with their bags of toys.

But, one of us barely made it through dinner.

The next day we headed to Istanbul!
