So far: Istanbul airport, Tekirdağ, through Gallipoli, a ferry to Çanakkale, Troy!, overnight in Ayvalik and now Bergama (Pergamon). We are staying in a beautiful old Greek designed home, with tiny staircases (you have to watch your head) and 9 foot ceiling bedrooms. This town is chockablock full of ruins, not just Greek, but also Roman and Byzantine. There are the ruins of the world’s first psychiatric hospital, including a “dream tunnel”.
