Venturer,

As an ancient history buff, I really liked this one! Pity how some folks have no respect for the dead, or the history/knowledge they pillage for the sake of something so trivial as wealth...Thanks so much for all those great pictures! I need to read the rest of your reports now!!



Now, I need to win the lottery so I can tour England/Ireland/Scotland, Turkey, Italy and Greece, the Holy Land....ugh!!!

Nice RR Venturer, there is soooooo much history in Turkey that is uncared for, I see it all the time, I wish the government would care for these things before they go forever.

Fantastic report Venturer. Always good to see ancient structures (such as the remnants of wall you were standing next to) in original unrestored condition, and know that the last time the stones weren't on top of each other was the day the wall was built.

I totally agree with you Dave.

OSHA Approved Flue?

I'd sure hate to bump my head on that stove-pipe during the wrong time of year.

Great pictures!

You live in an amazing part of the world! I have been able to spend a fair amount of time visiting Turkey, there is so much history. The food is great, the people welcoming. Keep posting ride reports from your area!
