House of Mary-
I liked that many religions came there to pray. Instead of listening to "the fear" of some, I found quite the opposite there. Very peaceful.
St. John's grave was probably my favorite spot of the whole cruise. It was surreal- herbs grew out of and flowers bloomed from the walls. The skies were stormy and huge storks flew overhead. They also nested at the pillars around the grave and even had babies (stork babies not human!)
Jim drinking apple tea and acting like he was going to buy a rug. (They were very beautiful)
We also visited a Turkish rug making facility. This wasn't a cheap shop, but actually focused on the art of rug making. From the dying of the wool to the weaving, I was impressed, but mostly the salesmanship. I walked away from Turkey knowing I had truly met the best salesmen in the world.
