Aspendos Theatre and Duden Waterfalls on our drive to Konya
We joined up with Semra Ozdemir in Antalya for our drive to Konya. Semra has lived in Washington for two years and met up with us for the rest of the trip before staying in Turkey with her family for several more weeks. On the way, we stopped at Aspendos to see the Aspendos Theatre. Its spectacularly well-preserved theatre is one of the best examples of Roman theatre construction in the world. The theatre is still used today.
We also stopped at a restaurant on the Düden Waterfalls. The place has the appearance of a botanical heaven thanks to the rich variety of plants. We were surrounded by the waterfalls and other trout restaurants.
