Good morning Belfast!

Let the adventure begin!

Our school visit today is to Gilnahirk Primary School.

We present the school with a certificate of appriciation and an artwork entitle 'World Harmony'.

Sharing peace with the world.

The Peace torch is passed to each student.

Best friends!

The children bid us farewell.

Our next stop is Belfast City Hall for a reception with the Lord Mayor, Cllr. Christina Black.

The City Hall is stunning.

We have a lovely meeting in the Lord Mayor's parlour.

Lord Mayor Black is doing wonderful work in promoting the creative arts in Belfast.

The Lord Mayor tells us about the significance of the Lord Mayors chain.

It weights a lot! Almost 5kg!

She gives Sandra from Austria the privilege to try it on.

Robert has the honour of being Lord Mayor for one minute!

In the afternoon we pay a vist to the botanic gardens.

And then it's time to give our Peace Run Van some TLC before we sail to Scotland. We give it a good clean inside and out.
