Guatemala 2 March: Guatemala City

Peace-week in Guatemala

Another day running around the streets in Guatemala City with the Peace Torch!

Mmmm....fresh fruits all year around......delicious mangoes

The kids were waiting for us at the entrance of the Sports Complex DIGEF; kids from different schools come to the Complex for their sport classes. Today we met kids from the ¨Republica de Turquia¨ and ¨Eufemia Vargas¨ schools!

A very nice welcome for the team

Giving high five to all the kids along the way to the main gym hall

3 good friends with 3 bright smiles

Even the teachers got the chance to have a moment of peace

We sang one of our songs for the kids and they joined us doing the actions

On our way from the main gym hall to the basketball field

Passing the torch is always see the kids smiling is something priceless

Running around the basketball field was fun!

Receiving the Certificate of Appreciation. Now the school is a real Peace Run member!

At the end everyone wanted to hold the torch once more......

...and also to hug Nariratna...

...and finally the smallest members of the school...

At the end all the kids have to return to their own schools...

...they all line up to get a seat in the bus...

There is a real party inside the bus, ice-cream inlcuded!!

A final good-bye from the bus. Thanks to DIGEF and the schools ¨Republica de Turquia¨ and ¨Eufemia Vargas¨ for this wonderful event!
