From Cappadocia, we took a 12 hour overnight bus to Pammukale. We rented a car, made a couple of frinds who also wanted to go and drove out to the ruins of Aphrodisias, about 110 kilometers away. This was a fantasic place to visit. The ruins are not so grand as Efesus but the place was practically abandoned because its quite far from pretty much everything. Here are a few of the pics of the site and one of the museum....

My faithful assistant caries my tripod.

The most significant structure in the city, reconstructed but beautifully preserved.

Poppies in the stadium.
