Greece – Turkey

website security

On the way to Turkey from Athens in 2009 I was amazed at this enormous Greek Flag ‘painted’ on it’s landscape and visible to the Turks on the mainland near the party capital of Bodrum. Β It is a reminder of the love-hate relationship that seems apparent in many countries around the world with their neighbours. Relations between Greece and Turkey have always been somewhat tenuous over the centuries although there are still many Greek families living in Istanbul however the dispute over Cyprus still remains.
