Thamara from Brazil. She reports: I came to Minas Gerais on Thursday, so i took these pictures here. The nature here is much beautiful than in Sao Paolo. I ran through a road that connects my hometown (Guarani) to another city. I really love to run here surrounded by this luminous green

I want to say thank you again to let me do this! Peace Run is always very special to me. I really felt the Peace Run energy in me and I could feel the light of the torch deep inside my heart.

A well wisher!

Jovana in Serbia.

Jovana reports: As this is my first Peace Run ever I am very grateful for the opportunity that was given to me. Although it is virtual it seems to me as if I can feel the energy and oneness with the members of my team as well as with the whole planet Earth. Every time my foot steps on the ground I feel a vibration of peace and joy that we selflessly share with each other.

Hot days in Finland call for cool therapies.

Abhejali in Czech Republic. She reports: The Peace Run has a very special place in my heart. I love being on the Peace Run – you see new places, you meet new people. And you make new friends. Some of my best friends from around the world I got to meet on the different Peace Runs – in US, Australia, other places. You spend a lot of time together, so you really get to know each other well. And these friendships last, even though you can live in different parts of the world.

Abhejali's niece. Abhejali reports: You also learn more about yourself, because being constantly on the road is not always smooth and easy – there are many things that can go wrong and your attitude in different situations can tell you a lot about yourself. So in this way you can find areas where you have some work to do. And I love that, although usually not at the time. But I feel I learn faster that way and make faster progress.

Abhejali: I was very happy I could participate in the virtual Peace Run. It is different than being on the road, for sure, but the spirit is the same, and you can somehow feel the peace in your heart and that it is spreading from there. The times during my runs this week made me think of peace and concentrate on peace and stay really positive, and I love that. It is good to dedicate some time in my day to feeling peace.
Warm greetings to people in Romania and Moldova. I do hope to visit your countries in the near future. All the best.

Roxana is originally from Romania, and is now living in Salzburg. She reports: Gratitude! Today I run for the Romanian and Moldovan children who have poor conditions in their childhood, hoping that one day they will find that inner flame, giving them the opportunity to bring their light to the fore. Infinite Gratitude. Today my dream to do something real and meaningful for Romania came true.
