My travel to Sypil Magnesia, rarely visited by tourists, but also known as Tantalus.
We went to Manisa on our honeymoon and since I’d blogged my way out of a pretty good job in Fez, I turned it into a job interview with a school there. I’d been emailing the director and he had said to come anytime and he would show us around. So we did. The bus…
