Russia 31 July: Imatra (Fin) - Priozersk

welcome to the Russian Motherland!

We said good bye to Finland. A big "Thank You" for the great hospitality and all the friendship!

Welcome to the Russian Motherland!

...the first steps...

...the Russian team awaited us already with big smiles...

...the passing of the peace flame to Russia...

...a local representative...

..and we sang the Peace Run Song in Russian and in English...

Ready to start!

...and we went straight into the first children camp...

...a big entrance...

Peace can be felt in the heart...

...a very cheerful crowd...

...and a few symbolic steps for peace - once around the camp!

Thank you for the enthusiastic meeting!

And the next camp: ready to go!

..before we could actually start the meeting, the kids ran enthusiastically around the camp!

Coming mainly from St. Petersburg, many of the kids spoke excellent English...

...we received nice awards...

...the run around the camp turned into a very scenic forest experience!

Thank you for the fun!
