Haram, Efes, Herefe

Sorry, but this is all I can show of the Haram or Turkish Bath that six of us went to in the morning. It has been in operation for over a thousand years.

This is a workroom within one of the villa excavations at Ephesus--a giant jigsaw puzzle!
My phone died before we got to the carpet shop so I have photos of the Turkish rugs only on my camera. Several of our group bought small but very "pahali" (expensive) ones. I now have a greater appreciation for this dying craft of hand knotted carpets. Herefe is the name of a family that produces some of the finest of these.

  1. I am so glad you also took your camera - we'll see lots of pictures when you get home. Please tell us the story of the Turkish Bath. All is good at Rivendell, and we show dad your blog every day.
