About your Host
As i am a religious person i could not come back home without Ephesus visit. To visit the house of mother Mary satisfied me so.
Whenever you visit here you need an umbrella. On summer, sun makes you fried. And do not forget to carry some water.
Rahter than the other antique cities, i could feel a living city during our visit. Actually not a city, a village.
