Myra, Turkey

As we were on our way to one location or another, we decided to take a little detour to see this ancient Lycian site. For more information about the Lycians and the actual site, check out this website. I will say that it is a must see in Turkey. It is simply amazing and worth the crowds and the summer heat. Here is a quick look at what we saw there:

The amazing arena/theatre.

The tombs carved into the cliffs.

An ornate carving that is just sitting on a rock.

Me and antiquity... I LOVE history.
