Our morning began with a scenic run into to Eiði.

Vores dag startede med et smukt løb til Eiði.

The children were eagerly awaiting our arrival.

The students welcomed us with a ring dance which has been a foundational social activity in the Faroes for many hundreds of years.

Eleverne gav os en velkomst i form af ringdans som har er blevet danset i sociale sammenkomste i nogle hundrede år

We reciprocated by teaching them the actions to the World Harmony Run song.

Til gengæld lærte vi dem World Harmony Run sangen med bevægelser.

The students really enjoyed their symbolical journey around the world - complete with passports for five continents.

Børnene kunne rigtigt godt lide det symbolske løb rundt om verden - hvor de samler stemple i sine pas fra fem kontinenter
