Andorra 19 March: Bellver De La Cerdanya - L´Hospitalitet

As we began running this morning the sky was overcast but soon the sun peeped out from behind the clouds to create a perfect compliment to the snow-capped peaks. As we turned north towards the Andorran border we soon found ourselves surrounded by tall mountains and a large group of cyclists came flying towards us, cheering us on.

We crossed the border and were joined by a group of local runners in St. Julia de Lona, who included Edgar Miranda dos Santos Amaro (Coach of the Athletics Club Valls Andorra) and Didak Martinez (Vice President).

Carrying the Andorran, Spanish, French and World Harmony Run, banners they accompanied us through the busy streets of Andorra La Vella. The multitude of shoppers were very pleased to see the burning flame and showed their support through cheers and applauses. As we left the city, the road became steeper and steeper and we found ourselves surrounded by snow. We passed several ski resorts and enjoyed the enthusiastic honking of horns by the merry skiers driving home. A very kind family from a town on the Spanish border were so inspired by the runner climbing the snowy incline that they voluntarily escorted him in their car and jumped out to join hands with us around the torch.

Just before the peak (2408m), the temperature dropped to freezing, visibility was reduced to 30 meters and our runners struggled to extract oxygen from the atmosphere.

Finally we descended, the fog lifted and after a little break for a snowball fight we crossed the border into France and reached our final destination at L´Hospitalitet where we were greeted with some home made ravioli and almond cake.

Today we said goodbye to our great Spanish coordinator and dearest friend Hareen, who took great care of us over the last 2 weeks. His calm and cheerful nature and his endless yet effortless translations served us well and we will definitely miss him.

After jumping into the snow Patrick was inspired to compose the following poem:

Goodbye, Hello
Same Sky, Same Flow
Adios, bonjour
Amigos, pour toujours
Adios la fiesta
Adios la Siesta
Hareen thank you
We all love you
With the Andorran runners
We start climbing
Up to the peak
The harmony flame dance
In a slowed melody
Between the snowed Pyrenee
We finally reach France

Distance: 101km
