The name of this city is 'cha-KNOCK-KA-lay,' with a slight pause between 'k' sounds. The stress on the middle two syllables makes it sound vaguely Hawaiian.

Our hotel was very close to the Dardanelles, and we could see a large WWII memorial across the water on the Gallipoli peninsula. See this site for one translation:

The photo album for this entry is just some shots we took in and around our hotel.
