We enjoyed a brief stop in the town of Mytilene on our way to the Asian side of Turkey. Due to the shallow water surrounding the port, we had to “tender,” or take a small (150 person) boat from the ship into town. We dipped our feet into the Aegean Sea for the first time and bought local olive oil. We also viewed the location of a former military post which is now the location of Mytilene’s Statue of Liberty. We look forward to a long day of sight-seeing in Ephesus tomorrow.
