United States 4 July: Bowdle, South Dakota - Andover, South Dakota
Happy Independence Day
Putu from Indonesia fills the Torch as the women's team gets ready for their early morning run to Ispwich.
This family ran a mile and a half with Nayaja. The children were tired but their mom is training for marathons and was quite ready to run some more.
After reaching Ipswich we said goodbye to Jim and Judy who were very kind and helpful to us at our stay at the Hospitality Hotel which they take care of.
Councilman Tom Schaeffer and our own Pujari Tom Scheaffer, (note the slight difference in the spelling of their last names), share the Torch at the City Offices in Ipswich.
Councilman Schaeffer and two of the employees, Amy and Michelle, join us for a photo. We are very grateful to them for coming out for us on this July 4 holiday.
Nayaja finishes washing the towels as she gets ready to join the rest of the women to visit some of the July 4 festivities at Wylie park.
A wonderful waterskiing demonstration was watched by hundreds of locals here to celebrate Indepencence Day.
