We are saying farewell to Gaziantep and to Turkey for awhile returning to Australia.  Before we left Antep I had to see the new Mosiac Museum.  It was fantastic and well priced at 5 lira per person.  New modern buildings with a fantastic amount of mosiacs.  They found these mosiacs on the banks of the Euphrates River and took most whole and put them into this museum.  If you have a chance to see it it is worth the trip.  Todays Zaman had this to say about it.


  1. What lovely works of art, and insights into history.
    Are you looking forward to coming back to Australia?

  2. Good luck with your move back to Australia. We'll definitely get to see those mosaics one day...
