great scenery and beautiful girls but you post too many photos at once. Don't forget that some people's computers are not as fast as yours, so please break your whole entry into smaller posts next time! Thanks!

Here are some interesting facts about Turkey that you probably did not
know.

1) The Life and Spirit of Santa Claus:
Santa Claus has been evolving for over 1500 years.
Around 280 AD a man named Nicholas was born in Turkey. He became an
orphan at 13 when a plague killed his parents. A great portion of his
inheritance he donated to charity and then he set off upon a sincere
study of religion, becoming an ordained priest at 19. Soon after he
became the Bishop of Myra. After his death he was declared a saint
and became the patron saint of sailors, merchants, maidens and children
because of the following legends. When a ship ran aground and the crew
on board was in danger they prayed to St. Nicholas. They suddenly looked
up and there he was in a red bishop’s robe flying towards them.
He saved them and flew away.

2)The famous Trojan Wars took place in Western Turkey, around the site where the Trojan horse rests today.

3)The oldest known human settlement is in Catalhoyuk, Turkey (7th Millenium B.C.)

4) Ephesus and Halicarnasus (the place for the two of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world) are in Turkey.

5)The first church built by man (St. Peter’s Church) is in Antioch (Antakya), Turkey.

6) Noah’s Ark landed on Mount Ararat (Agri Dagi) in Eastern Turkey.

7) The last meal on Noah’s Ark, a pudding of sweet and sour taste (asure), is still served throughout Turkey.

8) Turks introduced coffee to Europe.
