Kusadasi, Turkey

After walking through Ancient Ephesus we went to Kusadasi, a port city where our ship had docked. We then went on a tour of a carpet room and learned how carpets in Turkey are considered works of art, how women work for years and years and years, copying a pattern, how their spirit is somehow woven into the pattern, what a cultural treasure these carpets are. This woman was sitting outside the carpet room, weaving. Talk about painstaking!!!
