I knew precious little about Ephesus before I went to travel in Turkey. Located outside of Selçuk on the central, west coast, this old city is at once beautifully preserved and accessible. In Greece, I found many of the ruins cold and behind velvet ropes. But, in Turkey most places were approachable, allowing you to not only see them, but also touch them feel them. And, that tactile response, in a weird way, made me feel closer to them. You can’t leave Ephesus without getting a sense of how huge it is and how important this place really was. Its wide streets and partially standing ruins give you a sense of what it must have been like thousands of years ago when it was the 2nd largest city in the world, inhabited by an estimated 250,000 people! This photo giving you a peek inside the city is my pick for this week’s Suh-Weet Shot!
