Fun Friday London and the Olympics









Hello here I am in London with so much crazy Olympic madness happening around me. I just wanted to share some photos of the past few weeks. The mood here is amazing. The hot sunny weather really helps people put themselves into a party mood. I know the Olympics is not everyones cup of tea.  Wether it it is or not. You really feel a sense of history in London just now. I appreciate this will be a once in a life time experience for me. Even last night we hopped onto our roof and watch the practice of the opening ceremony from a far. Watching a huge white blimp lit up like a  Christmas tree and the Orbital flashing away. It was exciting to see. In London if you say you are bored you have missed the boat. Every museum, embassy,park and even in the streets has something to do and see and most of it is free. So if your in London and not battling to work through a sea of walkers and cyclist come outside and see what you can find.

Here are a few photos so far  for my first Fun Friday.
