Day 8 of Greece/Turkey Pigrimage

March 21

This morning we visited the legendary city of Troy, the site of the Trojan War described in The Iliad. Then we drove through the Gallipoli Peninsula, across the Dardanelles Straits by a car ferry, cross the Turkish border and continue on to Alexandroupolis in Greece. Fr. Schmitz celebrated mass at our hotel before dinner and then we had the opportunity for confession. Overnight Alexandroupolis.
