Photographer's Note

Legend has it that Cleopatra and Mark Antony once swam here. I am surprised I have not uploaded any shots before, only 4 of the travertine terraces. They would have sailed from Alexandria to Ephesus and then headed east to the ancient city of Hierapolis, now in ruins. The temperature is a constant 37c, but the day I was there it was 37c air temperature in mid summer plus it was rather expensive to swim here at 37 Turkish lira, although entry was free to look around. I saved all my swimming for the Mediterranean. Here and there in the water are pieces of the ruined Roman Temple of Apollo, which once surrounded and enclosed the geothermal spa.
