United States 9 July: Redwing, MN - Winona, MN

..They're "Minnesota Nice"

Gratitude to Yuyudhan Hoppe, our Coordinator for Minnesota. He organized wonderful events and hosted the Peace Runners for two nights.

Kate Zenzen from "Rivertown Multimedia" came out in Red Wing to meet the runners. Here she interviewed Sarankhuu from Mongolia.

In Lake City, "The Graphic", a nice reporter came out to cover the Peace Run.

It was hot today... very hot

Kshema found a new job holding the Lollipop sign and directing traffic.

KTTL TV came out to cover a ceremony held by the Peace Runners in Rochester.

Lydia from the Post Bulletin came to the Rochester Boys and Girls Club to report on our arrival here. Sarankhuu has the makings of an excellent spokesperson for the Peace Run.

We picked a nice shady spot on a tree for our ceremony on this hot day in Rochester.

The children followed Ryan, the Supervisor here who carried the Peace Torch to lead the Peace Train around the playground.

We are very grateful to the Boys and Girls Club of Rochester for their kindness and enthusiastic participation here with us.
