11/2 Moved to Pammukale and visited the famous travertine pools and Acropolis ruins above our wonderful stay at the Allgau Pension. What you see in the background is not snow but Calcium deposits from the water flowing into the cities water system below. We did not need to take our Calcium vitamins that day. We met some new friends on the train that day and both stayed in the same pension and saw the ruins together. Paragliders jumped from the cliffs above even the high ruins that overlooked Pammukale and landed in the ruins we were viewing. Our new friends, Kurt and Chris, lived and worked in Utah and in the next week of traveling together, we came to know them as our adrenaline junkies for their interest in climbing, avalanche skiing and diving.   Chuck
