Day 12- Cruise Day 2!

Kusadasi, Turkey and Patmos, Greece

overcast 23 °C

Today we disembarked in Turkey at 7am in the morning. The port was at Kusadasi where ancient Ephesus was located. We waited a while for the gates, where there was a lot of dogs and cats. They were taken care of by the staff and they were there to ward off the mice and rats.We walked through Ephesus, before we came to the ancient toilets. These were public toilets, where men would come to do their business and talk. The toilets were so close together that there knees would be touching. Anyway, they had a stream of water going through a drain in front of them and a sponge, and this is how they, you know. They sewerage would run down a hill, then the servants would have to dig it when the road became straight. But, in the Winter, Servants would be sent to sit on the toilets to keep them warm!!! Which would you rather do? Also, really exclusive people had reserved toilets with their initials carved into them. Then, we walked down to the Library. The Library used to be in a gazillion pieces, but the Archeologists put them back together. The women would do the shopping when the men would pretend to go to the Library. The women would come back smiling because they loved shopping and the men would came back smiling because there is a secret passageway in the Library that leads to the toilets. After Ephesus we walked through the town and sampled different kinds of Turkish delights. I normally hate Turkish delights but, they were really yummy. We got back on the boat and made our way to Patmos. We decided to have free-time, so I put my feet in the water but it was about 10 degrees! We also had some gelato and went back on the boat. I had a mock tail too. Tomorrow we have Rhodes and it's my 12th Birthday!!! I'm really excited!!!
