Chasing Treasure Hunters
 
Merry Christmas to you all. It is -5 outside now and I am dead-bored.
I decided to post here my recent pics.
This report here is about Proto-Thracians. This time I was after their graves, but I am not a hunter, I swear.
In fact I was determined to get the whole of those Emperor Anastasios Walls,lying 56 km from South to East and dividing the Marmara Region-Thrace into two. But I failed.Maybe next time we ll see that, but it is chilling these days.
On the road.This plane tree is 810 years old.(The one with a flag on it)

One must be really rich to spend so much on these walls.

On the way,there is a restaurant which serves really delicious trouts.
From inside:

I ate up. SR1; you missed so many things. You didn't keep your promise though you were in Istanbul phoning me. Don't find another lie for the next time,K?
Well,I started my trek,about 2km up the hills.

Roman waterways which used to carry water to Istanbul.(Appr.280 km)Still being partly used by locals.

In March 2007, when I was a newbie here, I shared my visit to Hagia Nichola Monastery (5th century) with you.(photobucket ate them all very quickly and they didn't last long here)
Recently, I made another visit and below, you'll see a selection of pics.
