Ephesus is the best preserved classical city of Eastern Mediterranean, ans among the best places in the world enabling to genuinely soak in the atmosphere of Roman times
Ephesus (Efes) is situated on the west coast of Anatolia, near present-day Selçuk, Izmir Province, Turkey.
The city was famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World. It is nowadays almost entirely ruined: only one inconspicuous column and fragments of the frieze remains.
It’s better to begin the visit by the top of the site (south entrance) and to walk along the main street.
During the summer, the visit is exhausting, because there’s no shade and it’s very hot (don’t forget to take water and a cap).
The site is very famous and overcrowded, too, but it is worth the visit.
The most impressive monument is the one called the Library of Celsus, whose façade has been carefully reconstructed from all the original pieces.
It was built by Gaius Julius Aquila in Memory of his father and once held nearly 12,000 scrolls.

This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat.

It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

Virginia City is a state-maintained historic site in the western part of the United States. In the 1860s, mining drew in investors and businessmen to the area.
