We went to the men's gymnastics final at the North Greenwich Arena (you know it as the O2!)
With our two Japanese girls and two English boys it was a GREAT day. I happily blend between these two groups, so cheer for everyone!
Pretty amazing thank you. The weather was fantastic. London was sparsely peopled. Here is a cyclist in Victoria Street. This was at about 11:30am.
We caught a bus to Westminster and walked across the bridge and had a bit of fun on the way.
You can see who's boss in this house!
We took the Clipper down the river and got a feeling of how great this city is and how important the river continues to be.
I am such a saddo! At one time (before my 10th birthday) - I thought Charlie was a bit of alright!
This says it all really. London 2012 - Olympic City
Security was tight, we were a bit too close to get a shot of all the helicopters on board.
From the river, the arena looked like a tethered spacecraft.
The girls got nabbed by a Japanese TV crew. Han hand stitched the felt sun and the words NIHON on her shirt the night before. Em made a flag!
We all felt proud and very, very excited.
At this point - time to stop. A few more photos to go up but by now most of you are probably doing more exciting things like cleaning out your sock drawers than reading this.
