After crossing the Dardanelles Straits, we checked into a hotel at Canakkale. The next day, we were off to Troia or Truva, a place in Turkey, famous for Ruins of Troy.
#8: RUINS OF TROY

This town is famous for Troy. Everywhere, you see lots of Troy or Trojan Horse souvenirs. Having just watched the movie, "Troy", last month, I was especially ecstatic to visit this attraction.
|The Trojan Horse comes to life~|
|What used to be a great city|
|Bricks stacked according to shape, not cement|
|What used to be a house|
|Fig trees, the fruits are lovely|
|My favourite shot|
|Each roman numerals signify civilisations|
|Remnants of stone|
#9: ACROPOLIS OF PERGAMON
After having lunch, we went to our next stop, the Acropolis of the Graeco-Roman city of Pergamon, situated in the town of Bergama. Because the site was above the hill, our bus was unable to take us there. Instead, we took yellow cab taxis to the site.
