Jakes's Progress

Euromus

Stratonikeia

Iassos

Euromos theatre
Having friends to stay is always a pleasure, especially ones that reconnect me to my lost iPhoto files (Thank you Simon). It is also good excuse to get out and about and revisit nearby sites. Jake is always up for a trip to some old stones and I like to think he's becoming  a canine authority on the differences between Hellenic and Roman theatres and the transition from Lelegian hilltop fortifications to Carian towns.  He certainly appreciates drinking rainwater from a 2,500 year old bowl and in the last picture he is contemplating the natural state of the unexcavated  theatre at Euromos and wondering whether he'll still be around when the rest of the cavea is uncovered.

  7. Aww, it's always great to be able to look back at old photos isn't it. I love looking through our archives and TRY to keep them organised but they get a bit wayward sometimes. :)
