Istidad reaches the top. Istidad frequently climbs volcanoes in his native Guatemala.

We were very grateful to have the support of Tesco who very kindly donated our lunch.

Uhaina unleashes the Welsh dragon.

At the summit there is a cafe. Here we are presenting the cafe with a collage of photographs from our previous visit. These photographs will be displayed in the cafe.

Carlos attempts to raise his core temperature.

Many thanks to Michele at Escelantes in Holyhead for providing us with excellent Mexican food.

Arriving at Portmeirion.

Portmeirion is the most amazing place - a village modelled on a town in Italy.

The owner, and grandson of the founder, welcomes us.

Also there to greet us is Lord ellis Thomas, a good friend of the Peace Run. Here he is awarded the Torch Bearer Award.
