  6. For a moment thought you are blogging about Thanksgiving. Wow the belly dancer has a very unique dress. Seen an olive plant before at my friend's house in Adelaide but without the olives, yeah good for health and for peace too.

  7. I've always wanted to visit Ephesus. I've read so much about it in the Bible, and would love to do a tour of the place. Maybe sometime in the future... Looks like you had lots of fun.

  8. When I visited the site with air hot balloon. There were no air balloon at all. Might because I visited Turkey in the middle of winter.
