Lands of the Bible 2010– Demre

posted by Ben Witherington

One of our last stops on the Gullet boat tour was the impressive little town of Demre, also basically inaccessible except by water. This was another Greek fishing village, that has some fortifications from the Ottoman period, and more interestingly, ancient Lycian and Greek tombs, and the oldest olive trees in all of Turkey.

Ben, Thanks for the great photos you have been posting of Greece and Turkey. Would you grant permission for me to use two or three of them in calling attention to your series on my Travel Blog: http://ferrelljenkins.wordpress.com? The first one I want to use is of the old olive tree at Demre.
Best wishes,
Ferrell
