England 2 October: Ramsgate - Brugge

Today the first part of the team that had stayed at the youth hostel in Canterbury started of driving to Ramsgate. The other part of the team had stayed overnight at a Kent hotel in Ramsgate. We would like to thank very much to the managers of Kent hotel for helping us with the accommodation.

Ramsgate would be the final city in England where the team was going to have meetings. Two schools were on the programm.

At 9 A.M. we met each other close to the first school, Dame Janet Junior School. The gymhall was packed with children and teachers and everyone was in a cheerful mood.

Mrs. Jo Brand introduced us to them and Devashisu did the ceremony. Although the weather was cloudy, wet and damp we were able to go out onto the playground to pass the torch to all the children and teachers.

Some children from different classes were chosen to run with the torch and the team while the other kids formed a big circle.

While running past them many gave high fives to us. The children became really enthusiastic when the teachers also ran a loop with the torch. Everybody cheered us and waved goodbye when we ran off to the second school. At St. Ethelbarts Catholic Primary School, Mrs. Clare Turner, the sportsteacher led us into the gymhall. About a hundred children greeted us. With much more space in the hall than the first school, we were able to do our little skitts about harmony during the ceremony. This time we had taken many World Harmony Run postcards with us to hand out.

On the playground we gave them to the children after they had held the torch. Now all of them started to ask for autographs from the team members. Everyone of us had a whole group standing around us and it was obvious that the kids were determined to get an autograph from all of us. Bhalavan was literaly pushed against the schoolfence by a big group of children.

It was really funny to watch all the team members being locked in by a group of children. All of us had a great time and we before we knew it it we had to run off with many cheers and yells.

We had a little time left before we had to go to the Ramsgate ferry to Oostende in Belgium.

We ran to the beach where all of us enjoyed the sea. Shalil and Devashisu were brave enough to go for a swim in the Canal.

At 1.30 P.M. we started our journey on the ferry to Belgium and continued all the way to Brugge.

Distance: 64km
