Great Britain 12 March: Merthyr - St Clears

A special thank you to our hosts at the Mercure in central Cardiff for their outstanding kindness and generosity

We began the day by revisiting the World Harmony Peace statue in Cardiff Bay

Then we ran to the Welsh Assembly building where we are met by.....

........ the Presiding Officer, Rosemary Butler AM

Rosemary Butler AM gave us a warm welcome and spoke to each of the runners. She gave us a tour of the building and told us that in eastern countries big decisions were often made by the elders of a community when they were sitting under a tree. In the picture above is the 'big tree' design in the Assembly building.
