Day 1 - 13 April 2015
The Peace Journey of the WILPF women of the Antipodes begins. We honour the peace journeys made by WILPF women over the past century.
Each day of our journey (where possible), we will bring you a daily reflection from one of the Peace Journeyers.
It seemed to me quite fitting that, after arriving at Istanbul Airport for the start of the Peace Journey and catching the Airport Train, every Istanbul Metro Train Station from the airport to the city had a striking museum poster featuring World War 1 Turkish soldiers.
The exhibition is called “Canakkale 1915”. Canakkale is the Turkish word for the Dardanelles where the Gallipoli Peninsula is located. The museum was closed today – so hopefully we can see the exhibition on Friday on our free day. You can see their website and look at some of the photos of the exhibition.
