This country is the birthplace of “Aphrodite”
I’d like to say that I took these pictures but alas my camera’s battery died and I wasn’t able to take any. But I did find several of the places that I have had the opportunity to visit. This is truly the “Island of Love”, the water is crystal clear. When you look across the shimmering Mediterranean Sea the colors turn from an azure blue, aquamarine, and then to emerald-green. The photo above is from the baths of Aphrodite, a beautiful little grotto fed by an underground spring.
The burial site of Umm Haram
On one of our forays we were able to visit the burial site of Umm Haram (Turkish: Hala Sultan) she was the Islāmic prophet Muhammad’s wet-nurse and the wife of Ubada bin al-Samit. The island”s Muslim community consider this a very holy site, the mosque itself has also been described by secular contemporary sources as being revered by all Muslims.
The Burial place of Lazarus
We also visited another amazing site where Lazarus was buried. When searching the internet it seems there’s a conflict as to the real location of where he is buried. But the best archaeological evidence points here. I must admit it amazes me that both of these sites are relatively close to one another. Anyone visiting here should most certainly visit both.
The sunsets are beautiful too!
So, this should reveal to you where I am. I looking forward to seeing your answers. It will be from this point on I will share with you the rest of this wonderful trip, what we get to see, do, and explore. Enjoy.
