Greece 6 March: Kerdonas - Edessa
City of Waterfalls
This village is at a high altitude in a beautiful part of Greece, where the climate is perfect for growing cherry trees.
Irini, our Greek coordinator, invites the children to offer a silent prayer for Peace as they pass the torch. Irini means 'Peace' in Greek!
Irini is meeting many friends on this Peace Run - she used to work in this area for the environment and wildlife.
On the left is Christodoulos Faniopoulos (School Advisor of Edessa-Pella Region, Ministry of Education, Greece). On the right is Vangelis Kiriakou (Director of Edessa City Tourism Department, Greece). Thank you to these two wonderful gentlemen for their kindness and hospitality.
Next we visit the school in the village of Nisi. Nisi means 'Island' because all the water from the nearby mountains passes by in two rivers on either side of the village.
