Off to see the world (there’s such a lot of world to see)

Stopover at Kusadasi, Turkey.

I assumed there would be a dresscode, it being Turkey and all. I was overdressed.

There’s something about cats.

If all libraries looked like this.

Ancient symbols.

I don’t know much about architecture, but this must classify as magnificent design.

Back to the port.

Land of carpets, Turkey.

They make convincing salespeople.

The streets of Kusadasi. Not quite what I expected when I thought, “Turkey”.

The way to Patmos.

The island for Christian pilgrimage.

Grotto of St John, the cave where John was said to have received his Revelation.

The view from inside.

Is it me, or do the walls exude serenity?

20120728-200138.jpg
Continuing up the Monastery.

20120728-200206.jpg
Photography wasn’t allowed indoors, so I took to taking the view from the windows.

20120728-200244.jpg
UNESCO World Heritage Site. I can see why.

20120728-200339.jpg
Patmos, from the entrance of the Monastery.

We got lost in the streets. Which was a great idea in the beginning, till it drew close to our boat’s departure. When we found a resident and told her we were lost, she responded calmly, “It’s a labyrinth here. Everyone gets lost.” Though we were panicking, I remember thinking, There’s something beautiful about that reply.

After a mad scramble, finally back at the port.

Back on the boat, dinner.
