Touring the ruined Roman city of Ephesus this morning, we almost drowned in a human tide of package tourists, many ferried up from cruise ships in port nearby at Kusadasi.
Thousands of zombies, giggling, prattling, often posturing for inane look-at-moi snaps against the ruins whilst everyone else waits. Must have been fifty or more coaches in the parking lot at the main entrance.
How many of these people will take home any significant appreciation of the site they blundered through this morning? Real travel: YOK! (Turkish for Not).
