Netherlands 4 July: Tilburg - Kinderdijk

Windmill beauty & childlike enthusiasm

We spent the night with our good friends Niek and Jenneke plus their kind neighbours, who have supported the Peace Run for many years. Thank you for all you have done for us!

First school in Tilburg, 'De Cocon'.

Poems about peace.

Smiles for peace.

A gift for the school.

Second school in Tilburg; 'De Regenboog' (meaning 'rainbow')

Everybody was feeling peace.

The mayor of Tilburg, Peter Noordanus, was also present and held the Torch.

More peace poems.

An artwork of Sri Chinmoy for the school.

The children were involved in a sponsor run to raise money for UNICEF.

Peaceful flight.

The third school of the day in Dongen: catholic school Sint Agnes.

The welcomed us with a peace song.

The children offered us peace drawings.

Keep the dream of peace alive!

Thank you Sint Agnes!

The fourth school 'De Menorah' in Oosterhout.

What do you think peace means?

The highlight of every meeting.

This is a real 'high' five.

Thank you 'De Menorah'!

In Holland we also have a route 66.

We arrive at one of the most beautiful spots in The Netherlands...

...the windmills of Kinderdijk.

It doesn't get more Dutch than this!

One of the active millers, all on voluntary basis.

Swans in flight.

This is called the 'fish eye' effect.
