Visited some civilisations in Konya on the way to Pamukkale. This was one of my favourite sites in Turkey. It is an enchanting cotton fortress. Hot mineral waters burst from the earth and cascade over cliffs forming pools.

Ancient Laodicea isn’t much of a city anymore, but unspoiled Roman ruins mark the countryside. Laodicea is located in the Lycus River Valley of western Asia Minor, near the influential, ancient cities of Hierapolis and Colossae. This valley was a primary trade route between the cultures of the West and East. Ancient Laodicea was also a primary hub for the Roman aqueduct system, which speaks to the picture of worthless 'lukewarm' water in John’s writing to the church there: “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)
