Worth Missing Biscuits

Yesterday

Yesterday I climbed the walls of supposed TROY. Yes, you know, the one of infamy... It was pretty awesome, Turkey is so lovely about not worrying if people climb and touch its ruins... I like it - I don't know how good it is for the object being touched, but I mean they are already ruins right? And this may also say something about how Turkey doesn't focus so much on the ancient past that mark the beginnings of civilization... Tour of Troy = 1 hour, Tour of Gallipoli = 5 hours with a complementary Ataturk statue! I did get to see trenches and wade in the water at Gallipoli. After Troy we moved on to Pergamom. Where I got excited over being able to use my art history vocab from 10th grade. But mostly today we rode in buses – I read “On the Road” and entertained flashbacks from last summer. It is late and for some reason I think we are all mostly arising early for adventures of various natures. So I’m going to go ahead and say good night to all y’all. Hope this post finds you well –
