Ethiopia 31 October: Mekele - Adwa

Tigray - the Northern province of Ethiopia

We entered Tigray, the Northern Province of Ethiopia!

Good morning Mekele!

We went straight to school: ATSE Yohannes Com. Primary School.

...last preparations...

...and action!

...our presentation...

...and a perfect circle for passing the torch...

...joy can be felt in the heart...

...what would be Peace Run in Ethiopia without running?

Thank you ATSE Yohannes Com. Primary School for the nice welcome!

Good bye Mekele!

Tigray has its own beauty:

...monasteries....

...public transportation for all...

...also for sheep...

...even sheep go shopping here....

...a funeral in Tigray...

...the country side resembles the Mesas in Northern America...

...back on over 3000m altitude...

...our daily running - the perfect training for Mount Kilimanjaro....

...on our way to Axum we passed a small primary school in the mountains.

Of course we stopped there...

...big smiles everywhere....

...and an unusual Run around the school: all the kids lined up like a chain...

See you again tomorrow!
