    Turkey is a land of great culture, natural beauty, sun, sea, history,
    and people. It stands at the hub of the civilized world, straddling both
    Europe and Asia. Civilization after civilization arose on this soil,
    built cities, flourished, fought wars and vanished leaving landmarks
    everywhere. The whole Aegean coast is a treasure of Greek and Roman
    archaeological sites, some of the finest lying close to Kusadasi:
    Ephesus, Priene, Miletus, Didyma and Aphrodisias.
    Turkey's appeal does not lie just in its rich heritage. There are warm
    seas, exquisite food and wonderful markets selling carpets, kilims,
    copper and leatherware, all kinds of jewelry and excellent local crafts.
    And the Turkish people are obliging and friendly, justly famous for
    their hospitality. If you have been to Turkey before you will know this
    is all true; if you haven't, you're in for a treat. Don't miss it. --
