Pamukkale with a Korean Tourist – Photo

categories: Uncategorized


On a trip to Turkey in 2007 to visit our former Turkish exchange student we went to Pamukkale and Hieropolis which is a few hours drive from Ephesus. Pamukkale is a series of thermal pools and calcium deposits running down from the top of the hill. So you take off your shows and go wade in these pools taking your picture against these snow white deposits. A Korean gentleman motioned to me and I thought that he wanted me to take his picture. I reached for his camera but he then made it clear that he wanted his picture taken with me. Do you suppose he is a fan of the Amateur Traveler? 🙂
