PEACE RUN

Guatemala 5 March: Guatemala City

a heart made of Peace

Our Peace Run week in Guatemala City brought us another highlight: we went to the "Colegio Capouilliez". An enthudiastic crowd of students welcomed us....

Pazala means "pass it on", paz means "peace" - a nice game with words...

...students and teachers enjoyed or song...

...Peace can be felt in the heart....

The principal of the college welcomed our team warmly...

...one symbolic lap by the staff - carrying a huge Guatemala flag!

...we received a nice gift!

...the passing of the torch was another highlight...

The "Colegio Capouilliez" went for a Run!

...the final presentation: a huge heart, formed by the students:

A heart made of Peace - PAZ! Thank you all for the outstanding meeting!

...easy rider...

...with a police escort we went o to the next event...

We reached our next meeting: the "Guarderia Los Patitos" - a lovely kindergarten for youngest. The older children awaited us at the gate...

...the further we went in, the smaller the kids...

...big smiles...

Both Mr. Álvaro Enrique Arzú Yrigoyen, the mayor of Guatemala City and his wife Patricia de Arzú gave us a warm welcome.

The mayor shook hands with all team members and received the flaming torch with kind words.

Mrs. Patricia de Arzú is also the head of the kindergarten and performs an outstanding job!
