Temple of Artemis

I got up at 6:00am so I could get a shower and eat breakfast before I disembarked on Turkish soil. We lucked out and our group was called off the ship first, so we proceeded to find our bus. After we found our bus we proceeded to the House of the Virgin Mary. When we arrived at the house, I was suprised on the size considering how old it is. When I entered the house I had a sense of calmness and tranquility. I had some of the biggest goosebumps in my whole life. Just imagine walking into the last recorded dwelling place of the Virgin Mary. After the House of the Virgin Mary, we headed to Ephesus, where Paul wrote to the Ephesians. There were some interesting things there including one of the biggest ampitheatres I have ever seen and a beautiful library front. After we were done with the tour, we headed back to Kusadasi where I picked up an England and Nederlands futbol jerseys.

Patmos, Greece
Then we boarded back on the ship and headed to Patmos, Greece. We got to Patmos and didn't see anything that intrigued us, so we went back on the ship and  put our swim trunks on so we could swim. I was in the water for about five minutes and I stepped on a piece of glass, so, that was that. I went back to the ship and doctored my foot up and took a nap. The nap was so rewarding being that we had absolutely no time to rest on the whole trip. I woke up around 6:00pm, went and picked up my passportand proceeded to get ready for our formal dinner. I shocked everyone with my zoot suit and Armani shades. We had a great time and after dinner the younger ones went to the discoteca. We had a great night of dancing and talking. I ended up getting to bed around 1:30am.
