Antalya: Ruins of Termessos 

The ruins of Termessos is probably one of my favorite among the many in Turkey. For one it’s very much a ruin – nothing has been restored (or at least nothing looks to be). And second the view is fantastic! Although it is set on top of a mountain outside the city of Antalya, spending half day is enough to see the ancient city.

The Whirling Dervish 

He tilts his head, raises his hands, palms in opposite direction, then starts whirling. He does this for several minutes that I wonder how come he doesn’t throw himself off balance by now. The Whirling Dervish or Mevlevi of Turkey is a good dancer.


Beijing: Mutianyu Great Wall 

Beijing, The Great Wall. Walk up to the highest point tower 23 for a nice view. She tells us this as we drive on a sunny Friday morning to the Mutianyu section of the wall. What we didn’t know was that from tower 14 it was going to be a test of strength to tower 23. It took us around two hours back and forth I think. Difficult but doable.
