Romania 22 May: Campulung - Rasnov
The beautiful mountains of Transylvania
In Campulung we visit Nanu Muscel school, the first of many school visits today. We may get tired after a long day of running but we never get tired of seeing the vibrant and enthusiastic smiles of the children we meet.
We run up the mountains north east of Campalung and the nature is absolutely beautiful. The green valleys and tall peaks create a fairytale landscape.
This school in Fundata happens to be the highest school in Romania. The principle jokes with us that children are very peaceful because they are closer to the peaceful sky!
The Peace Run presents some funny plays which get a joyful reaction from the children. Sadanand, our Irish runner has just joined the team and is already tackled to the ground by Devashishu, our team captain. Of course it is all just playful drama and joy.
The children at the school form the Romanian flag with their colourful t-shirts. Many Romanian flags fly high against the blue sky.
The forth school of the day was in Bran and the young teenagers had drawn some artwork in preparation for the Peace Runs arrival.
We run by Dracula's castle, that which inspired the famous tale! We hope we can invoke a bit of peaceful energy in this otherwise mysterious place.
A delightful and colourful plate of cheese lies waiting for the runners to enjoy. The runners look to see if they can find their country flag.
