Liege - Tilburg (NL)

Meeting some fans of the Peace Run.

We're very grateful to the management of hotel Campanile for sponsoring the Peace Run with 2 free rooms. Thank you!

On the run from Liege...

...through the beautiful Belgian countryside.

Two torches.

We stopped briefly in Tongeren, where they had a religious festival taking place once every seven years.

Everywhere in Belgium there are big cathedrals and churches.

This kind-hearted lady stopped our runner on the road and gave us home-made honey and sweets.

And when we were parched with thirst because we had forgotten to bring water, this young lady and her mother appeared out of the blue and bought water for us. Angels do exist!

Our first and only meeting on this easy Sunday was at scouting club Sint-Michiel Anne Frank (SMAF) in Hasselt.

Kids from different ages listened to our presentation.

Trying to feel peace in the heart.

The next generation of peace-makers.

Eager spectator.

Thank you for a warm-hearted reception!

The scouts ran 1K with us out of the town.

One of the scout's mothers spotted us from her window.

Creative running.

Planning the road ahead. It was an enjoyable run towards Holland the rest of the day.
