In order to get to our destination, we need to cross pass by the Aegean sea. They have ferries to carry vehicles (just like Penang once had) to the Asia part of Turkey. Do you know that Turkey is made up of two continents, Europe and Asia? Imagine by just crossing a bridge and you can be on the other continent without having to show your passport. Isn't it cool to be a Turkish? However only Istanbul is considered Europe and I wonder do the Turkish insisted on getting their children being born in Istanbul so that they can be Europeans?
I was really sad and almost fell into depression to watch the movie TROY a week after I came back from Turkey. If only time can be rewind, and to I were to visit this archeological site after I have watched the movie. Not the opposite. So that I can see how ruin is the city now compare to the computer-generated glorious moment of Troy once upon a time. Seriously if you have not watch this movie either, go watch NOW. Excavations revealed that this piece of land, before Troy, had 9 different cities and 46 levels of habitations almost 3000BCE. Which impressed me a lot because I still couldn't imagine a city being totally buried and gone while another new city being built on it after some years. Although this place is look less interesting (due to massive damaged) than it supposed to be, the story and myth of this place did not fail to interest me. I love myths. Especially the ones with ruins and better ones which turned into movies. Still, I hope to hop back to the ferry and cross the Aegean sea to Greece! I believe there are more ruins to be explore.
