So… my Mom and stepdad are hanging with me in Turkey for a few weeks. I booked a trip to Antakya or Antioch (ancient city with the first established church – in a natural cave) – a pilgrimage, if you will. We boarded the bus way to early in the morning, but it was totally worth it. Our day started with a scenic drive between the mountains and Mediterranean to the cave church in Antioch where the disciples hid/lived/and held services and baptisms.
Our trip also included the Archeological Museum, a trip through the winding narrow streets of the ancient city, and the grand bazaar. More to follow later. For now I’m gonna need some sleep.
