The 3 statues you posted were "Virtue", "Wisdom" and "Science" goddesses... Trivial, but cool...

Nice, that you took care of the stray pup. He sure looked like he wanted you to take him with you.

Great story so far, Doug & great shots of Ephesus as well.

I was there almost 30 years ago and it doesn't seemed to have changed much! Rumor had it the two story library you show had a secret tunnel to the nearby Brothel. That particular establishment carries the honor of having the world's first advertisement engraved in the stone walk/roadway pointing you in that direction and telling you to bring cash...

Day trip

Hello Doug,
I see you are staying in Baku for your visas, if you want to make a day trip you could go to Xinaliq it's just outside Quba and it's real nice. Here are some pics from 2008 while I was working in Azerbaijan.

All the best, Alex
