Belarus 6 July: Volozhin - Zaslavl


A happy plastic: take a closer look at this house. The pictures and decoration are not paint, but mosaic made from bottle caps and bottoms!

We were absolutely amazed by the creativity and inventiveness of this gentleman. See the palm tree on the left? It remains green all year even in minus -20C.

They on the other hand were very happy to hear about the Peace Run and hold the torch

Team has a moment of silence before running off

Our dear friend and helper in the traffic

spread the word

Danica is literally flying on the first few kilometers

Peace Run in the lead:)

Today we went off the main roads and enjoyed the countryside

Stopping by locals

So many Belorussian people we met on the road really embrace the idea of the Peace Run and put their best wishes for a brighter future into the Peace Torch

Peace is unstoppable!

As we ran by the kindergarten in Piarshay kids and teachers saw us and asked what we are doing, so we held a little ceremony for them

This is how we make friends

travel with style

We all loved the beautiful small villages on the way

What´s up? Never seen a Peace Run bus?

Lunch picknick

Need more cucumber?

Back to Peace Run business: after a short but intense rain we received a very warm welcome at the camp GALACTICA

Feeling the peace...

...and sweetness:)

Children made some beautiful paintings for peace

The local sport champs

Group shot in light rain

No Peace Run without running!

We hope to see you soon!

Back to ourselves and the road

Team arriving in Zaslavl

A very warm welcome by the city authorities

They even invited us to light the traditional fire that was going to happen later on in the evening

The founder of the city

Future Peace Runners

We also got a guided tour through the local museum

Natalya finally found perfect shoes...

Danica got her morning coffee...

...and Ondra could not believe to have FOUR plugs all to himself.

As the night set in we presented the Peace Run to the people of Zaslavl

Many came and held the torch

Pay attention to Ondra`s feet!

Sharing the light

What a day!! Thank you Zaslavl!
