This is Frederick reporting from Nicci Café on the waterfront in Kusadasi, Turkey back from our visit to The Blessed Virgin Mary’s home in Ephesus and the ruins of Ephesus. Now I have better WiFi (fingers crossed) I will try to publish some notes and photos from our prior visits to Athens, Delos and Ephesus.
Because of the WiFi, they may be out of order and not as many as I want to show you. In fact, it looks not to being nice to me here in Kusadasi, so if I post without photos you will understand.
[Those are my friends from the cruise. Reese on your left and Alejandro in the middle. Reese is from Florida and Alejandro from Puerto Rico. We are going up to the Acropolis of Athens].
But it is better than nothing and right now it publish or perish (my Dad told me that).
By far, Ephesus, today, was the most magnificent archeological ruins we have visited. Plus seeing the house our Mother of God, Mary, lived in was pretty special to me. I lit a candle to my two departed Grandmothers and wrote a “wish” note for the Lord’s blessing on all of us. Then I pinned it on the façade by the “wish tree” they don’t use anymore.
Athens and Delos were also great but Ephesus was the best.
I am making lots of friends on this cruise and see them on the excursions sometimes.
It looks like I have better WiFi now and will try to catch up.
