It was great fun exploring Troia although I must say it was damn hot in Turkey at that time. The fact that the area had not much trees, made it worse. I took pictures everywhere in Troia but the truth is that I had no idea what I was taking. It was all rocks and ruins.
Any mention of Troy of Trojan War woud definitely remind you of the Trojan Horse. Here at this site, there's a replica of the wooden Trojan Horse smacked in the middle of the place. It's obviously not the real thing. The giant wooden Trojan Horse was build meant as a playground for kids. But seems to me like it was the adults that ad the most fun climbing up the Trojan Horse.
To be quite honest, I never expected Troy to be in Turkey. I would have imagined it to be somewhere in Greece or Rome. Silly me. Well, that's what you get when you don't so your homework or worse, when you skip your history lessons while schooling.
We spent quite a few hours at Troia. By the end of it all, I was ready to leave as it was getting hotter and hotter. It was afterall, noon and lunchtime bells are ringing. Hahahaha...
We said our goodbye to Troia and headed for our next city, Kusadasi which was very far from Troia. We past Izmir on the way but didn't get to stop.
