      Isn't it the Bosporus? (sp?)

        tand, you're correct. I jumped the gun, having recently edited a travel article with Dardanelles featured prominently. But Bosporus is indeed the one connects the Black Sea.

            I've always read Bosphorus, but I see it can be either. I never could keep all the names straight - Constantinople, Istanbul, Bosphorus, Dardanelles, Hellespont. Too many people with their fingers in that geographical pie.

              As The Four Lads would say, it's nobody's business but the Turks.
