PEACE RUN

Guatemala 6 March: Villa Canalis - Boca del Monte

finale furioso in Guatemala

Our last Peace Run day in a period of one very busy week brought us to the "Colegio Cientifico Guatemala" in Villa Canalis.

...students from the school awaited us...

...and carried the torch into their school grounds...

Italy?

..the kids performed for us...

..we passed the torch...

...and the kids stormed through the streets...

Thank you "Colegio Cientifico Guatemala" for the nice welcome!

..a typical bus in Guatemala. The way they drive they don't have a break...

..Siesta-time, but we kept running...

...a 10km - stretch to the final meeting in Boca del Monte...

...another group of students received the torch from us...

...the last meters...

...a very picturesque welcome with fire-crackers...

Party time in Boca del Monte!

The kids from the "Colegio Rafael Pratdesaba" really topped it!

Everybody celebrated the arrival of the torch. The children weclomed us with banners, colorful hats and big smiles!

..the band was outstanding...

...a banner for Sri Chinmoy, the founder of the Peace Run...

For more than one hour we enjoyed the party....

...the heartfelt-part of the presentation...

...and the song...

..the kids offered a wish for peace!

A big Thank You to our organisers!

...the usual school-yard stampede...

...sweets make all girls happy...

Our gratitude to the "Colegio Rafael Pratdesaba" for the unforgetable event!

Good bye Guatemala for now! Thank you for all the joy and hospitality!
