We are thrilled to bring another live mix from Ozan Kazanasmaz with his, “System Gliese 581” mix from Canakkale, Turkey.
Canakkale is located on the southern Asian bank of Dardanelles Strait, which links the Aegean Sea with the Sea of Marmara while separating Europe from Asia.
The site of the historical city of Troy is close to Canakkale. During World War I, Canakkale and the Canakkale Strait was the stage of a year-long battle between the UK, France and the Ottoman Empire. From April 1915 to January 1916, a joint British and French operation was mounted to capture the Ottoman capital of Constantinople (now Istanbul). The attempt failed.
Today, most of the places in Çanakkale are within walking distances. You can pick up a free tourist map of Çanakkale and the surrounding areas. They also have schedules of the minibuses to Troy and ferries to Bozcaada.
One thing not to miss while in Çanakkale is bomba, which is the usual döner in half a bread plus an omelette added in. Local, so don’t expect to find it anywhere else. Also, there is Peynir Helvasi which is a special dessert made of cheese, yolk, semolina and sugar. And must not forget, Husmenoglu. A patisserie famous with that dessert
