Great excitement to learn that my bid for Olympics tickets had been successful and, although I had barely thought about the games during the busy-ness of New Wine, here we suddenly were!
Volunteers along the last mile use these large fingers to point the way to the Olympic Park. My sister-in-law borrowed one to mirror the pointing cloud :)
Many people were walking around adorned in flags, but this guy had taken National pride a step further. Chinese, I think; definitely South East Asian.
- Though I did also spot the Union Flag round his waist :)
Under the welcome signs and a view of the Olympic Stadium.
The basketball arena is by the River Lea...
...and the Queen's barge, Gloriana, is moored nearby.
