We saw the huge horse. It was really big. It was sad to see the young soldiers memorials. 15-16 years old. One more think, there were 2 bullets which have meet in the air. Can you imagine the conditions of this war?

While we were passing the Bosphorus by boat it was some cold. Troian Horse was so fascinating. Our hotel was comfortable. Could be some more clean. But the location was good.
