A Fantastic Place to Eat

Our cruise had a scheduled stop in Kusadasi, Turkey for visiting ancient Ephesus. We signed up for a 4-8 person tour of the historical, Christian sites in the area. As it turned out, we were the only ones that signed up for the tour. What a great deal! For the price of a group tour, we had a guide and driver all to ourselves.

It was one of those days that you remember long after you return home. If we didn’t have the pictures, we might doubt that it had ever happened. Seeing the remains of Biblical Ephesus and the other sites has given us a greater understanding of the Bible. Now when we read about Ephesus, we have pictures to put with it.

One of the things that really made the day was the lunch stop. Our guide asked us if we had any preferences or dislikes and we told him we wanted to try some local foods. He knew just the place. Bizim Ev Hanimeli Restaurant is buffet style serving Turkish food cooked by “Mama”. So many dishes with yogurt, eggplant, zucchini! Did I say that is was fantastic? It was all so good. They have two eating areas: one they seem to steer the tourist groups to and the other seems to be for the locals. You can buy Mama’s cookbook on their website. Sitting outside in the sunshine with the hanging strings of garlic, onions, dried red peppers, and dried eggplant eating food unlike any I had ever eaten was amazing.

Hmm, I might be seeing a pattern here. It seems like I might really enjoy sitting outside, in the sunshine eating or drinking coffee.

There are 2 things that I really enjoy in: real estate and travel. I have been able to incorporate both of those interests in my life. I am able to work as both a real estate broker/agent and travel advisor. When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling with my husband.
