Italy 3 October: Torre a Mare - Bari

a lot of fun in Bari

A perfect morning in Torre a Mare...

...we met local runners and lighted the torch...

...the olive trees were stored for later on...

...a scenic run along the sea shore...

...we reached Bari....

...and we arrived at the 26th C.D. primary school in Bari...

...the kids gave us an enthusiastic welcome....

...meanwhile our runner-friends enjoyed their break...

...a lot of happy faces...

...the first peace tree found its place....

Thank you Bari for the enthusiastic meeting!

...nice snacks for lunch...

...on the way out we paid surprise visits to some classrooms...

Thank you for the hospitality!

...we went on to the public hospital Giovanni 23...

...a heartfelt welcome by the staff...

...we met some kids at the entrance...

...and we inaugurated our latest achievement: a big banner for the closing ceremony in Rome. For this meeting here it was a bit out of proportion...

...another peace tree....

...after visiting some children in their hospital rooms it was time to say good bye...

Lucia, our great local coordinator. Thank you and all your friends for the outstanding organisation and hospitality!

Good bye Bari! Hopefully we will see you soon!

After moving our team to the Westcoast of Italy we enjoyed a traditional dinner in Pompei!

...what would Italy would be without Pizza?

Our special thanks to Giuseppe Acanfora of the ASD Movimento Sportivo Bartolo Longo for hosting our team!
