We met Hakan at the cruise terminal in Kusadasi and were driven in a new, large air-conditioned van first to Mary's house and then to the Ancient ruins of Ephesus. While Mary's house was built on what were the ruined foundation of the house she would have occupied the historical information that Hakan provided useful. The excavated ruins of Ephesus were awe inspiring. To walk in the steps of Saint Paul and to sit in the stadium where he taught was a once in a lifetime experience. We highly recommend Hakam
