Ancient Fanboy: Star Wars in Ancient Turkey

On our last day of touring sites in Turkey (not including Istanbul), we visited the site of ancient Assos.

Outside the enormous and well-preserved city walls, we came to the cemetery lining the main road. There were many sarcophagi, huge and made of andecite and scattered about like broken toys.

Odd question. What does it feel like walking through these ancient ruins? Are they just empty rocks or can you get a feel of the people who lived there by passing through the ruins?

That's not a carving of a tie fighter, but a side version of a Cylon basestar. :)

aka Myrddin from westeros

(I'm enjoying your travel log here. I wish I could have an expierience like this. Well, again...)
