North Macedonia 3 October: Skopje - Kumanovo

school-time in Macedonia

An live - interview brought us out early in the morning: ready for our last day in Macedonia.

Schooltime in Skopje, the capital. First we visited the "OU Goce Delcev"-school. The kids lined up for High-Five...

...a musical welcome...

Wishes for Peace...

We could spend plenty of time with the kids, so we enjoyed our stay to the fullest...

A big "Thank You" for this heartfelt welcome!

In Skopje you feel like in London: red double-decker busses cruise the streets...

We arrived in the "OU Koco Racin" school.

The children prepared beautiful paper torches - and doves!

...excellent drawings...

...a perfect Peace-program in the gym hall...

...sweet performances...

...a final symbolic Run...

...all the "artists"...

Thank you for the enthusiastic meeting! You embraced the Peace Run in a most inspiring way!

We enjoyed a sight-seeing Run through Skopje...

...as we approached the "Brakja Miladinovci" primary school, a group of children awaited us already to run in.

The kids did an excellent job in the country-guessing game...

...a schoolyard-stampede...

Thank you for the fun! We will come back soon!

All these school-meetings take their toll..

Our Macedonian team on the road...

...we arrived in Kumanovo. A group of runners and cyclists joined in...

...we arrived at the main square...

Mr. Zoran Damjanovski, the mayor of Kumanovo, received the torch.

A final performance in Macedonia!

Thank you Kumanovo for the nice meeting!

...our last stretch to the border...

We arrived at the border between Macedonia and Serbia. The torch was passed officialy to the last country of our European Peace Run 2014.

Once more all our gratitude to Macedonia for all the hospitality, friendship and inspiring meetings. We will keep you deep in our hearts!
