Safe in Turkey; Ready to make Peace
Safely arrived in Istanbul with five American students in tow late this Tuesday afternoon. All well, routine. Most of the 28 students from 23 countries have arrived. We had a lively group dinner tonight at a great restaurant near the hotel. (At least the students were lively. I'm jet lagged and more disoriented than usual. Am I still in Africa??) The youngsters are really fired up and enthusiastic about the upcoming People to People's Peace Camp, which begins in earnest tomorrow with a morning session about the nature of peace followed by an afternoon tour of the city.
It's pushing 10:00pm now, and I'm running on fumes. Hope I can sleep.
