Nepal 11 February: Bhaktapur - Kathmandu
The kingdom in the Himalayas
The opening ceremony takes place up in the hills that surround Kathmandu, at the site of this Peace Statue.
Ms Rajani Joshi lights the Peace Torch in front of the statue of the founder of the Peace Run, Sri Chinmoy.
The Deputy Mayor meets Ashrita Furman, the Guiness Record Holder for having the most Guiness records.
His colleague, Homagni Baptista, throws grapes and Ashrita has to slice them in two with his samurai sword while standing on a Swiss Ball.
Ashrita breaks the record, 38 grapes sliced in one minute. Ms Rajani Joshi is delighted that the record has been broken in her beautiful corner of the world.
The runners are invited to write a message and sign this beautiful piece of Art created by the students.
