Turkey 29 September: Eceabat - Cannakale
From Europe to Asia across the Dardenelles
Vijayanti led us through the streets to the ferry waiting to take us across the straits of Dardenelles to Çanakkale.
The local media were very excited to capture images of the torch as we helped launch the expo for the Gallipoli Marathon whose slogan is very inspiring - "I Run for Peace."
