- Nice one,, also liked yr comments on TV about the sunrise over Eastern Canada. Di you ever get a look over the Golden Horshoe?Jan 25, 2013
- Never tried to drag up politics nor hatred. I just made a simple comment about a historic fact; of what the city was known for up to the 1920s. If you believe I did that for political reasons, I can delete the comment right now, even though I'm speaking completely out of playfulness and, in response to other comments that went "unanswered," unlike mine (which made me look like the villain). I don't really mind how the city is called because even Istanbul as a name has a Greek origin (Is tin Poli) and besides it was called Byzantium before it was even called Constantinople; I'm one more perfectionist that want to see the right being said. I do enjoy the picture and your posts, that is the reason I am following you after all, isn't it?Jan 25, 2013
- I respectfully ask that you look back at your own comment from an outside perspective and see if you might be overlooking how it comes across to others.

- Chris it is a wonderful picture thank you for sharing it with us...Constantine Please see this for what it is and don't be so partizan. The region was used by others before the Greeks too. I too have been displaced personally and it hurts, but I moved on.Jan 25, 2013
