Slovenia 7 June: Maribor
schools, a statue and a big hill
..all the schools of today are good friends of the Peace Run, so we were looking forward to see again many familiar faces!
...after the meeting we were treated with a great lunch! Thank you "Toneta Čufarja" for the hospitality!
After the lunch we arrived in the Magdalenski Park, where former MP Mr. Rudolf Moge and a representative of the city of Maribor, Mr. Marjan Kosi awaited us.
Mr. Moge is a very good friend and supporter of the Peace Run. Many times he supported the Run and helped in countless ways. Together with the city representative he received the peace torch...
The park hosts a statue of the founder of the Peace Run, Sri Chinmoy, who was a personal friend of Mr. Moge.
...later on we arrived at the feet of Pohorje, a mountain near the city. Together with some local hikers we carried the torch to the top....
