Traveling to Turkey was apparently pretty popular with the ancient Romans. And, one of their favorite places to go was to Pamukkale where the natural springs were believed to have healing powers. After visiting, I’m a believer. The water carries high concentrations of a limestone called travertine. When the water evaporates the white sediment remains covering the mountainside. While you might think you are at the Arctic, the summer temperatures can approach 40 degrees Celsius! The day I went, it was at least that hot and the water, while warm, was a welcome relief from the heat. After wading around in the water (some of the pools are deep enough to swim in) my feet felt as smooth as a baby’s bottom. On my next trip to Turkey, I will go back at stay at one of the spas in the area to be able to enjoy the waters even longer. I had a lot of fun playing with my camera and was able to capture this Suh-Weet shot!
