Bodrum Ampitheater. Built in the 4th century, it seated as many as 10,000 in the audience. The amphitheater is in great condition today, but is unfortunately located next to the noisy highway through town. I would have thrown a great Mountain Play picnic there in ancient times.

Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. This massive structure was one of the original Seven Wonders of the World before earthquakes and political shifts reduced it to rubble.
Ottoman shipyard and mariners cemetery. It's still an active shipyard below, but on the hill an incredibly lush field of wildflowers among the grave markers.
My Family and Other Animals and was having a full-on Gerry meltdown about finding a tortoise.
Manti (Turkish ravioli) for dinner.
