Monday we awoke bright & early for out 7am flight to Ephesus. Cab driver must have drive about 80 but got us there by 6.35am. Queued through two lines where bored security people barely glanced at our bags. Flight on Atlasjet was wonderful all around- it reminds me of what US airlines were like 20 years ago. Hot cheese sandwich and beverage for a one hr flight and FAs who spoke good English and were friendly. Caught the free shuttle to Selcuk but no one told us when to get off for our stop. So after finally ting our hotel, we freshened up and trekked the hike to Ephesus. Unfortunately we accidentally came out on the lower gate so had to do tour backwards. Audio guide was hard to follow and numbers were hard to find in some areas. Luckily we came mid day when the tours were at lunch though they came again in the late afternoon. Perhaps I've seen too many ruins but while the theatre and the library were awesome- I ended up on information overload. Plus my camera finally gave up the ghost and died halfway through. I will say the crowds right now are non-existent here and everyone in Selcuk is more approachable than Istanbul. It's nice to get outside.
