There were cemeteries, military cemeteries, old cultural assets, new Jewish ones, the latter inaccessible. In between, a city that lives.An almost successful finish. Now wait for June 23rd for the next section.

What's that on picture 17? A formation of crosses ... kind of scary.
Thanks for the trip through Northern Greece, I'm looking forward to the sequel, I'm curious.

The soldiers separated by nationality. You can't even have the last rest together.Nice impressions again.

@ennasuS You say it. A military cemetery. Crosses without end. A number of x fallen versus the many x crosses and the area for the fallen, with names and so on ... that's a sad feeling!

@Sigrid H Thank you very much. I'm curious myself too.
@Scout Jens Thank you very much. Almost two years ago I had the most memorable experience in France about the separate lying of the fallen. A common grave site for French and German soldiers of the First World War was dug up there and buried again "cleanly" separated into French and German. There was a French monument and a German flower bed. This is based on a wise original idea.
How one has probably separated the bones according to nations 🤔🙄
@Scout Jens It was the uniforms that recognized it, then the badge. This badge (one half) could not rot and decompose. Metal. Embossed. Durable. Inconceivably.Tomorrow I'm going again, I'll come through the Dardanelles, where there was a terrible slaughter around 1915.
