Day 2 - 14 April 2015
This evening we went from Europe to Asia, where we saw more beggars (with the huge numbers of Syrian refugees in Turkey, restrictions on begging are not being policed for refugees). On "She Tours" for a dinner cruise on the Bosphorus, Stella bridged the gap between Greek and Turkish dancing.
Last week I went to Gallipoli, and I got such a thrill to see a huge banner on the ferry going across, a good start considering I hadn't really wanted to go. As the morning wore on I soon felt so glad I was here. The day was long, It was Saturday so very crowded with locals as well as tourists. It was wonderful to share the day with so many local people, this memorial as important to them as it is to us.
