Called Assos in ancient times (and sometimes today) C.J. Mosley Youth Jersey , Beh ram kale is a divided city: half its inhabitants live around the imposing ruins, set on a hill, the others in the small port below. Assos (daily 8.30amsunset; charge) may have been a Hit tite settlement in the 13th century BC, but its true rise began in the 8th century BC when settlers from the Greek island of Lesbos took root here. They constructed a terraced city, much of which remains, on an impregnable site above Aegean shipping routes. In the 4th century BC, Hermias Joe Flacco Youth Jersey , a former student at Plato's Academy in Athens, rose to power, instituted a regime based on the Platonic notion of the philosopherking and founded a school of philosophy,

attracting Aristotle, who eventually married the king's niece. After Hermias's execution by the Persians, the city passed from one ruling power to the next; the medieval Ottomans dismantled much of the ancient town for building stone. The view from the ancient acropolis is wonderful down the coast, and over to Lesbos. An American archaeological team is currently restoring the 6thcentury BC Temple of Athena. Around lie the remains of the ancient agora Lamar Jackson Youth Jersey , gymnasium and theatre. The necropolis is well preserved, strewn with pieces of the limestone sarcophagi for which ancient Assos was famous, and about 3km (2 miles) of the old city walls are intact. A curiously modern note is struck by the simply proportioned 14thcentury Murad Hudav endigar Camii.

The little fishing harbour, at the bottom of a steeply twist ing road, has a compact collection of restaurants and hotels popular with the Istanbul art set. Since the Greeks are encamped only 8km (5 miles) away, at Lesbos, the town also has its own border police.

Follow the coast road around the Gulf of Edrernit to the charm ing city of Ayvahk Tim Williams Womens Jersey , 131km (81 miles) south of Behramkale. Founded by Ottoman Greeks in the 16th century, it was a prosperous, ethnically Greek city left all but empty after its in habitants were ejected from Turkey in 1923. It's since been re settled, but its square stone houses and narrow, winding streets overhung with balconies and lined with lovely carved wood en doorways still feel Greek. Stop at the busy central bazaar where cobblers and metalsmiths ply their trades. Tall minarets mark the city's mosques; note especially Saatli Camii (for merly Agios Ioannis), named after its clocktower. The mosques are mainly former Greek Orthodox churches.

The best beaches are several kilometres south of the city at Sarimsakh, heavily developed with lines of holiday hotels Chris Wormley Womens Jersey , bars, discos and restaurants. Boat excursions leave from Ay vahk (near the information booth on the waterfront) every morning. The trip lasts for most of the day and includes the nearby islands such as Alibey Adasi, popular with ancient travellers including Plinys Elder and Younger and Ptolemy, and makes frequent stops for a swim.

Pergamon, 54km (33 miles) south of Ayvalik on Route E87, was once the royal city of the Attalids, and the most magnif icent Hellenistic city in Asia Minor. Give yourself plenty of time here Tyus Bowser Womens Jersey , for this was one of the greatest and most beautiful of all Greek cities, and its ruins speak eloquently of its past. The city became famous in the 3rd century BC when Lysi machus, a general in Alexander's army, deposited his consid erable treasure behind its walls for safekeeping. Sadly, he died in battle not long after. His officer, Philetarus, inherited the lot and set about founding a dynasty Jaleel Scott Womens Jersey , adopting (he is said to have been a eunuch) a nephew, Eumenes, to succeed him.

PARIS, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- The popularity of French President Emmanuel Macron, who celebrated Tuesday his 100 days in office, has dropped to a historical low, recent polls showed.

President Macron's approval rating dropped to 36 percent Kenny Young Womens Jersey , a historical low for a French president's 100 days in modern era. His unpopularity rate is 10 points higher than his predecessor Francois Hollande, according to an Ifop poll published last Friday.

This was a sharp contrast with the 66.10 percent votes Macron obtained in the general elections on May 8, 2017.

The fall of his approval rating can be partly explained by the budgetary savings for 2017 initiated by the government, the departure of several ministers and the implementation of a project to moralize the country's political life.

What originally caused the decline in his popularity was the reforms initiated by the government, especially the reduction of housing subsidies of 5 euros per month starting from October.

""We need to undertake a comprehensive reform of personal housing subsidies, which is absolutely essential because we are dealing with amounts to be mastered but above all with structural reforms to be put in place,"" Jacques Mezard Anthony Averett Womens Jersey , Minister of Territorial Cohesion, told French radio station RTL in late July.

The announcement has triggered debates in France. For the opponents as well as a large number of French, the government attacks the poorest by lowering this aid.

Housing aid cost France 20 billion euros (23.47 billion U.S. dollars) last year, according to official figures. French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has stressed the importance of reducing the housing aid cost, saying ""we spend twice as much as our European neighbors on housing assistance.""

Meanwhile, Macron's plan to trim defense budget spending by 850 million euros (980.4 million U.S. dollars) to help the nation meet the deficit target of 3 percent met opposition of France's most senior armed forces chief Pierre de Villiers, who resigned in July.

""Under the current circumstances I see myself no longer able to guarantee the robust defense force I believe necessary to guarantee the protection of France and the French people Orlando Brown Jr. Womens Jersey , today and tomorrow, and to sustain the aims of our country,"" de Villiers said in a statement.
