The Games Begin

After a 70 day, 8,000 mile journey, the Olympic torch arrived here in London to officially open the 2012 games.  The opening ceremonies were viewed by millions all over the world with 204 countries being represented at this fabulous event.  This is a ginormous celebration for all the countries involved and quite an honor to be here for the experience.  There are 4 million extra people here in a city of 8 million, so you are at the party without even going to an event.  We have tickets to some events but its impossible to be everywhere, but never fear, the boob tube will get you a front row seat .  We have been blessed with  some unusual outstanding weather mixed in with our normal rainy days.  Love it!
