Today was a travel day by bus to Pamukkale for overnight. We visited the ruins of Hierapolis which was a Roman city then gradually Jewish & Christian. There are many natural hot springs in the area and evidently many earth quakes which led to the abandonment of the city. The springs have minerals in them which have left the mark on the land after building up over hundreds (thousands) of years. Thankfully, though we were anticipating fog- the weather was great. The sun was out most of the day and temps felt like maybe 60's.
