Travels With Carol, Greece
There were some funny stories to tell and I will also make a comment on the food....not crazy about Greek food but luckily on board the ship we had other choices. This is a funny one...on our way back from Turkey we were hoarded into a big room and as we sat on benches around 3 sides of the perimeter, we were served Turkish tea. Then, we were subjected to carpet salesmen in the middle of the room displaying large rugs. We were trapped! Finally, I said to Susan "Let's get out of here" and we walked over the rugs and out the door. Some of our group did buy carpets and had them shipped to the USA. What a sales technique. After seeing the ruins in Ephesus, we had to go thru a large bazaar to get to the bus. We were surrounded by vendors grabbing at us. I really wanted to shop but was afraid and just wanted to get out of there.
