[August 2012] Turkey is the country standing both in Asia and Europe.
Today our tour went across Dardanelles to Asia, though I did not feel anything particular.
The town on the Asian shore was Canakkale.
Our hotel was at the suburbs of the town and they had their own beach, so we decided to try swimming in Dardanelles.
Unfortunately the water there was not so clean, and that put me off, though our tour members went into the water without any hesitation.
