  1. Last Sunday I visited Gallipoli, lot's of cemetaries there, a great fortress which fought in the early sea-battle. The only problem was I wasn't able to visit the visitors-center because there was a celebrations of British at this day.

    The military museum in Istanbul had a special exhebition about the campaign too. All worth a visit!
