Sites Visited: Lesvos Archaeological Museum

Where did we stay tonight?: Chios town

Leaders: Chris Young ’05 and Sarah Murray ’04

On Lesbos, although we had little time to explore the island, we made the most of it. After a morning spent investigating the local archaeological museum, focusing on the Roman mosaics from several local houses, we split into three groups. One group stayed in Mytiline catching up on various errands. One group took a rental mini van and drove northwards to Methymno, the second city of the island. It has changed little since the nineteenth century, but we had very little time to wander around and appreciate its charm. Instead, our time was spent eating lunch and briefly dipping into the Aegean for a post -meal swim. The last group also headed to Methymno, but only as a brief (and out of the way) detour to the petrified forest on the western side of the island. We arrived shortly before closing time, and the local guard was unwilling to allow us entry into the site. After that, it was a race back to the port to board the evening ferry to Chios. In retrospect, our time in Lesbos was not particularly successful, in an archaeological or tourist sense, but we managed to make something out of what little we had. While we didn’t see any sights, per se, we did see much of the island itself during the various car trips into the countryside. Oh, by the way, the author of this report is a guest to this trip- I am a veteran of the 2003 FSP, and Sarah (the awesome TA) and I were selected as “all-star” leaders for today. I think “all-star” is a polite way of saying “old and probably cantankerous, been-there-done-that” alumni of the FSP experience. In any event, I was more than happy to give the students a break from leadership duties.

Saturday May 23rd

Sites Visited: None (various Turkish bus stops, Ayvalik ferry port, semi-unreality of perpetual movement)

Where did we stay tonight?: Mytilini (Lesvos)

Leaders: Ally Begly and Kait Barber

Today was a big travel day. After awakening very early (5:45), we ate a final breakfast at Istanbul’s Hotel Tria, home of the most incredible breakfast spread/desert bar that we have encountered so far in our travels. We then boarded a shuttle bus that took us to the bus station in Istanbul. Our bus was scheduled to leave at 8:00am and arrive at the port at 5:00pm, so we had a long ride ahead. Though some of us were expecting the worst, the Turkish bus system turned out to be a very classy establishment. In addition to having a satellite TV connection (even though only Turkish soaps were on), the bus had extremely comfortable seats, and, most importantly a snack and beverage cart. Most of us caught up on sleep/our Iliad reading during the ride. Around 5 pm, we arrived at the port, where we got ready to catch a boat to the island of Lesbos. After CJ had a high-speed chase to retrieve his camera, we were ready to go. The ferry took about an hour, and then we were back in Greece. We all miss Istanbul, but it was nice to have a gyro again after 4 days, because some of us were going into withdrawal. Tomorrow we check out the archaeological museum and head to the petrified forest!

Friday May 22nd

Sites Visited: Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar.

Where did we stay tonight?: Istanbul

Leaders: Kait Barber and Chris Johnson

After sleeping in and enjoying a long breakfast, we gathered at 10 am to meet our tour guide and head over to Topkapi Palace.  Along with hoards of school children and tourists we made our way through several gateways and gardens into the heart of the Topkapi palace complex.  After a brief introduction on the different parts of the palace, we had time to explore the exhibits and feast our eyes upon the crown jewels, holy Islamic relics, and Sultan costumes.  The kitchen alone had 20 chimneys and had room to feed up to 12,000 people.  Among the most spectacular of the pieces were the two 105 pound solid gold candlesticks and an 86-carat diamond.  The diamond, known as the spoon-maker’s diamond, was first found and traded to a spoon-maker for only 3 spoons.  The palace also has an exhibition of Islamic holy relics, including the staff of Moses, sword of David, and a footprint of the Prophet Muhammad.

After seeing the incredible exhibits and breathtaking views of the Bosporus, we headed to the Grand Bazaar. At the Grand Bazaar, we said goodbye to our tour guide and were sent free to explore the Bazaar and bargain to our heart’s content.  We left with our wallets lighter and our arms full of scarves, tiles, jewelry, soccer jerseys, fezzes, leather jackets, teas, and Turkish coffees.

We all split off to enjoy our last (tear!) night in Istanbul.  Some traveled over to Taksim Square in Beyoglu, the hip shopping and dining neighborhood.  Although two FSPers enjoyed the Star Trek 3, others chose to experience a more traditional Turkish evening and ate at Marco Pasha, a restaurant with delicious stuffed flatbread.

Sites Visited: Chora (Kariye) Church, Theodosian Walls, Rustem Pasha Camii.

Where did we stay tonight?: Istanbul

Leaders: Kate Ginsberg and Joe Indvik

Today we once again got an early start after feasting on the delicious dessert-for-breakfast buffet that the Hotel Tria had to offer.  Our day began with a tram ride to the docks, where we caught a quick ferry to take us up part of the Golden Horn.  The first stop for our group was the Kariye Camii, or Chora Church, another church turned mosque that originally stood outside the walls of Istanbul and is famous for its mosaics, which depict events from the lives of the Virgin Mary and Jesus and other religious scenes.  We then walked along some of the Theodosian city walls and admired the view of the Bosphorus and the various neighborhoods of Istanbul.  Next we caught a bus back to the dock area to tour the Rustem Pasha Mosque, which featured many beautiful Iznik tiles.  We were then turned loose for a short lunch break, and the group split up to enjoy seafood, doner (the Turkish equivalent of the gyro), or various other edibles purchased from the nearby Spice Bazaar.  We spent the afternoon at the Istanbul Archaeological Museum, which also houses a tile collection and a building dedicated to the ancient Orient.  After a brief lecture, we divided up into groups to perform a scavenger hunt of the most famous museum artifacts and write up some captions for our photos.  But our work wasn’t yet done, because as soon as we handed that in we were hard at work on our latest Iliad assignment.  After finishing that, the group explored a bit and found some very authentic Turkish restaurants for dinner before going to bed for some much needed sleep and to dream about our future purchases at the Grand Bazaar the next day.

Wednesday May 20th

Sites Visited: Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Camii), Ayia Sophia, Yeravatan Saray (Underground Cistern), Sokullu Mehmet Pasha Mosque

Where did we stay tonight?: Istanbul

Leaders: Ben Kahn and KT Holroyd

Today we woke up bright and early in our beautiful Istanbul hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the extensive and delicious breakfast extravaganza laid out for us. We all traipsed up to the roof garden to complete our background assignments for the day. Though we had a great view of Aghia Sophia and the Blue Mosque the wind was raging.  Our guide for the day, “Bartch,” met us at the hotel and gave a brief introductory lecture to Istanbul and the sights we would be seeing.

We then took a short walk to the Blue Mosque very close to our hotel. We walked into the large courtyard and received a lecture about the history of the building and Islam. As we entered the mosque everyone was in awe of the impressive blue tile-work and painted designs along the ceiling. Perhaps dwarfing the artwork, however, was the great excitement of the group to finally see a definitive pendentive (not a squinch). After wandering around for a while we made our way across the park to the infamous Aghia Sophia. We had another lecture in the courtyard before entering the massive church-turned-mosque-turned-museum. We were all amazed by the massive open interior space and the domes looming above our heads. After taking the time to examine the Byzantine mosaics we made our way out to find some much needed sustenance. While some chose to try the Turkish version of the gyro, others dined upon pasta, rice balls, or shish kabobs.

After lunch, we descended into the looming depths of the Yerebatan Sarnici, or cistern basilica where we were confronted with over 300 columns lit up in a dark pool of water. At the back of the chamber we even found two upturned Medusa heads that had been reused in the construction of the cistern. Reluctantly returning above ground, we headed to the Sokulle Mehment Pasha Mosque which is now partially used as a religious school. As we got our lecture in the courtyard there were several young boys playing ping-pong and the Imam even came by to let us in personally. Unlike at the Blue Mosque, which was “tourist friendly” the ladies were required to put on head scarves, some worn more gracefully than others (Dallis may have had a little trouble with her bandana turned doo-rag turned yaya scarf). After admiring the beautiful tile work in the mosque we walked to the site of the ancient hippodrome, passing by four large monuments including a 1500 year old Egyptian obelisk, the serpent column (used to commemorate the Greek’s victory at the battle of Plataea), and a German fountain given to the Turks in the early 20th century. We said good-bye to our tour guide and all departed to work on assignments, rest, and prepare for another long day of sightseeing tomorrow.

Sites Visited: Athens Airport (Flight to Istanbul)

Where did we stay tonight?: Istanbul

Leaders: Charles Clark and Jerry Guo

Today was a red-letter day for the Dartmouth Greece FSP 2009. Finally leaving behind the shackles of the Hellenic mainland, we were due to leave for Istanbul in the early evening. This was the first time in Turkey for most members of the group, and we were all very excited for the trip.

We had the morning and most of the afternoon to ourselves, and we chose to spend that in various ways. Some went to the US Embassy to find a replacement passport, some picked up laundry, and some laid in bed and drank lemon Fanta. By 3:30pm, all were packed and ready to leave, and we left on the X95 express bus to the airport. As we found out, the metro line to the airport was down. TIG.

The airport, flight, and minibus ride to the hotel were extremely smooth. We settled in at the Tria Hotel right next to the Blue Mosque and Ayia Sophia to prepare for a long day of sightseeing.

Where did we stay tonight?: Athens

Leaders: Alex Assaf and Kait Barber

Laundry! Haircut! Catch up!  Students were as busy as ants on this fine Monday off in beautiful Athens, preparing for another leg of the FSP adventure.  The weather allowed for some outdoor fun as it hovered around 70 degrees for the majority of the day.  Some people finished their chores early and could really enjoy their free day.  Some decided to go shoe shopping as evidenced by Kathryn’s new pair of shoes.  Some decided to sit under a tree in Syntagma Square, enjoying the weather and watching the bustling city of Athens move around them.  Others still relaxed in cafes and took their rare, precious time to fully enjoy themselves.  Sleeping in (while listening to techno music—see video!) also seemed to be quite an advisable plan since tomorrow we will head off to the foreign lands of Istanbul, across the Aegean, and we will be moving as soon as we hit the ground.  Hyah!  Gotta love this learnin’ stuff.
