When we arrived at the spot, unfortunately, it was blessed with rain. We were supposed to walk for 4 kms. for the whole the area of historical site. What about ous group? We did not walk due to the rain. What did we di? We just got a mini bus to the restaurant which was located at the end of the walking route. I really wanted to walk as there are any interesting artifacts to be seen. This was dated back in the Roman Empire. It remindes me when i studied the World Civilization. I think you know more from Wikipedia i make a link above.

We were at the restaurant, the rain kept pouring down. I made all of us chilling. I think the temperature was 10 degree. By the way, we did not have any umbrella except ajarn Dr. Hamdia who brought the umbrella from home. Our tour guide, Yasmin, requested us to buy umbrella on the way before the bus climbing to the terrace but we did not. I was really sad that i did not follow the guide’s instruction. Once we took a mini bus to the restaueant we could not be able to see the spectacular scence of our world heritage.
However, we could walk on a hot spring terrace from the top to the far end. It took about an hour and we enjoyed ourselves. The photos above show how happy moment we got fro the walking. You might see that we wore a rain coat to cover my important stuff in the backpack.

Once we arrived at the mountain foot our tour guide was waiting for us. It was almost 3 pm and you can imagine how hungry we were. The buffet lunch was provided in a restaurant. I was starving at the moment after using energy in climbing and walking from the mountain top to the end. I ate lots of food including western and Turkish foods. I enjoyed eating very much.

After that we were brought to a precious stone workshop which was located at the corner from the restaurant. All dispaly stones were nice but the price was a bit high to me. You can guess whether i bought it or not. Of coirse, i bought nothing. Window shopping was my job.
