Troy

This morning my group said goodbye to Greece  and crossed the border into Turkey. We boarded a ferry at Galipoli, (the site of horrific casualties in WWI), and crossed the Dardanelles into Asia Minor. We had a facinating visit at Troy, and from there on to Troas.

At the time we were at the site of Schliemann’s trench.

Perhaps you have heard of the “Trogan Horse.”

Tomorrow we are to begin our tour of the cities of the Seven Churches (Rev. 2-3).
