... small groups (the vast majority who were Turks, unlike Istanbul), a wide range of street food (e.g. corn on the cob, muscles, turkish breads, sunflower-type seeds, etc.) and seemingly very little alcohol. And lots of litter. Maybe we'll venture out for a bit before hitting the sack. We have to get up early tomorrow as we trek out to Ephesus to explore. I'm very much looking forward to checking out the famed temple of ...

... in Gallipoli. Not a good way to lead...
The Brits and the French formed a strong naval alliance and tried to open the strait in March to no avail. So the Brits, Aussies, Kiwis and Indians planned on a massive assault from the sea at Gallipoli while the French tried to overtake the nearby town of Çanakkale; this was supposed to take place at dawn on April 25, 1915.
