Good morning Varaždin! We arrived at the Varaždin primary school nr. IV. The kids awaited us enthusiastically....

...another great setup....

Thank you Varaždin for the heartfelt meeting!

...it was time to move on...

...the city representative welcomed our team....

...and the kids joined us for several km!
