We have safely arrived in Izmir. Everyone is in their rooms resting for a little while and then we are going to meet at 5:00 for those that want to walk down to the Aegean Sea. Our tour guide has been giving tours in Turkey for 30 years and will be an excellent guide. He has told us it is very safe here and I am relieved. The people have been very friendly and helpful.

Our hotel is called the KayaPrestige. I think if you google it you would be impressed with our accommodations! I am!

I am blogging from my phone so I don’t know how it will look to you, but wanted everyone to know that we are in Turkey and doing well.

I have added some pictures from my phone of the Athens airport and the drive in Izmir to our hotel.

Let me know if this works!
