ABC WEDNESDAY: T for TAVERN, TROY, TOPAZ



I couldn't decide which "T" words to use this week.
So i chose three things to tell you about.
TOPAZ is one of my favorite stones.


Every colour, every size.



In Greece we have a lot of TAVERNS.
We love the Greek food and snacks.


And last, but not least, i want to write about TROY and TROJAN WAR.
Ten years of hard battles, men to men, between Trojans and Greeks and then the idea of the TROJAN HORSE which ended the war and gave the victory to Greeks.
From the movie "Troy".
If you want to know more about this war and what real happened, read the Iliad of Homer.
Great epic poem.

The Troyan Horse is a beautiful story! So are your photos. Thanks for your comment! I thank you also for the award It's an honour.

I love topaz, but I didn't realize they came in different colors.

I taught the Iliad for many years in my literature classes--actually, a condensed version of it. I always enjoyed it; I don't think the story of the Trojan Horse was actually part of Homer's writing, but that was always my students' favorite part.

Great post--my T post will be up tomorrow morning.

Hi Antigoni, a wonderful post as always. Your photos were lovely. The Trojan Horse is one of my favorite stories that I learned at school.
