Poland 2 June: Český Těšín - Zywiec
Some students brought a candle to get fire from the Peace Torch and bring it home. What a great idea!
We were treated the same lunch as children and it was excellent! We wish our school cooked like this.
Wisla is famous for its ski jumping stadiums. In fact, the world champion in ski jump, Adam Malisz, lives and trains here.
In Szczyrk we were welcomed in a style. This is what they wear at the Tourist Information Office it seems.
The Beskid mountain range continue in here from Czechia and Slovakia. The region retains similar culture and habits as in those countries.
We finished at the castle where the Mayor was awaiting us. It was a heartfelt meeting with someone who really understands what we are doing. It's inspiring to meet people who are on our side.
Beautiful statue of Pope Jan Paul II in front of the castle. Many years ago the Pope has held our Peace torch as well and placed his prayers and blessings into it. It was a most sublime and blessingful experience.
