And there I was, where I was able to see two continents from the top; Asia and Europe. How beautiful it was with the Turkish flag! By the way, there is another fortress just across Rumeli that is called Anatolian Fortress. When you acknowledge that these beautiful pieces of historical architecture were made for war, you start to think how many people have died here? And you feel sorry about the history of humankind which is filled with bloody stories of glory and defeat. At least I felt sorry for a moment. Then I saw the fig trees and remembered my childhood and it was all ok again. There was nothing I can do except to learn and take lessons from the history. Right?
