Wednesday, 20.11.2013 – Ephesus, Virgin Mary and trip to Sirience
On Wednesday at 8.00 am, we meet at school. We were all very excited because we wanted to go on a field trip.
From the school we drove one and a half hour to the House of the Virgin Mary. On the way, we had a stop to have breakfast. After one and a half hour, we arrived at the House of the Virgin Mary. There we visited her house and drank from the sacred spring. Subsequently, we drove to Ephesus. This is a four-thousand-year-old city, with two amphitheaters, a big library and many houses. It was very interesting and we had a lot of fun exploring the ancient streets, houses and sites. Later we saw one of the seven world wonders, the Temple of Artemis. After that we made a trip to Sirience. That is a little village in the mountains, where we went for shopping or ate some traditional Turkish food.
Finally, we drove back to school by bus. It was a funny bus drive that was shorter than we thought. He listened to Turkish music and danced on way back to Izmir. After arriving at school, we drove back home. It was a very good day.
