Anyway, at the end of the long day we made our way back to showers and shade at the Anzac Golden Bed Pension in Kuşadasi, I successfully used my 10 word Turkish vocabulary to order bread and cheese from the nearest corner store, and we planned our next move. The guidebooks and tourist brochures advertise day-long tours of Priene, Miletus and Didyma, three ancient sites along the Aegean sea to the south of Kuşadasi.
This is the standard touristy shot of Priene:
Miletus, I think, is somewhere off in the blurry horizon of this picture:
And the massive temple at Didyma:
Unfortunately, tours of Priene-Miletus-Didyma only run on Wednesdays (at least before the tourist season gets into full swing), and the only day we had available was Saturday. So we decided to try the tour by public transport, thinking that if we got an earlier enough start we could at least see two out of the three locations.
