Great Britain 22 March: North Berwick - Wooler

Scotland turned on the sunny weather for us on our final day there.

Only Harry Potter and our new runner Shimon can do this.

His sister Karolina maybe knows some magic too... but more importantly, she can run! They have just joined us from Prague.

Our final school in Scotland, Law Primary School, welcomed us in the morning with a rousing reception - and a global theme.

Each of the class groups were commemorating the World Harmony Run by representing a different nation of the world.

They also followed us across their sports field in the steps of another famous torch relay - the Olympic Torch Relay - in what Law Primary School calls the O-Law-mpic torch run. The Olympic torch relay through the UK will begin from Land's End (the finishing point for the UK World Harmony Run 2011). 

Many students really enjoy our exercise in which we close our eyes and get in touch with the harmony inside our hearts.

Of course, some of them might need a bit of practice...

Is that a magical little blue man in the background with the  flag of Scotland. (If Ireland has leprachauns, what does Scotland have?)

We continued running along the coast of Scotland.

OK, we weren't only running. (Even runners need lunch...)

Even runners need sleep.

Even runners need... actually, this wasn't us. It was cool to see this on the beach, though.

We continued towards England - on the quiet backroads of Scotland, surrounded by sheep and rabbits.

Somebody made a big heart for L on the hill...

The scenic silence of the road to Longformacus was a contrast to the dynamic and bustling cities.

Petar practises his tightrope-walking on a gate. (We're not sure how he plans to use this wonderful skill.)

Can someone please explain to Shyamala that riding to England would be cheating?

The Tweed River leads us across the border...

From here, macaroni pies will be replaced by Yorkshire pudding, and Shetland ponies will be replaced by Black Beauty. Or something like that.

One thing that remained the same, as we headed rough some gorgeous countryside en route to the charming Northumberland town of Wooler, was the weather. wonderful Sunshine, coupled with a strong and chilly breeze - just to make it more challenging.

We arrived in Wooler early in the evening, but for many in the team, the work was not over. While Sandro and Vladimir cleaned the van, others cooked dinner, planned the next day's itinerary, and did the other chores necessary for our journey to proceed smoothly.
