Turkey Day 6: Sardis, Thyatira, and Bursa

All three of these sites were the same ones that we visited last semester.  The new pictures appear further below, but here are a few pictures from our hotel site, Aqua Fantasy

The Artemis temple on the other side of the hill from ancient Sardis.

A later Byzantine church built next to the Artemis temple


In the remains of an ancient public building, later converted into a Christian church.  Thyatira was one of the seven churches of Asia mentioned in Rev 1-2.

The silk market, where Rachel and Elaine scored some nice scarves
