What do the Paralympics mean to you?
OLYMPICS SIGHTS LONDON 2012
Well it was easier than I thought.
Got myself an oyster card pay 25 pounds(transportation card a must).
The card cost 5 pounds(x1.7.us$) and you had up the amount you want to put on, when you ran out, you just put more on but with 25 pounds, it's good for a while and the card is a collectable item too.
Hup on the tube(metro) jubilee line from Baker straight to the Olympics sights at Stratford stop.30 minutes.
Got off and follow the crowd. Ouf! The noise and the people. Can not really stop.Lots of crowd controllers telling you to keep calm and carry on with big megaphone.
Got there, it is well indicated and lots of volunteers to tell you where to go.
Great area, shopping mall, resting area, pubs and restaurants. People seem to enjoy themselves.
Unfortunately, met a lot of no ticket supporters...
Olympics fan who travel the world, great athletes, had dinner with the Switzerland television girls at a great italian place at Pasta Remoli. Mamamia! That was so good! Lots of fun to mingle with everyone.
Access to food and drinks are available for everyone's wallet.
Collectable pins are already hard to find and the flame is no where to be found unless you have a ticket.
Was very happy to be there. Spotted a few athletes shoppin form Russia, Brazil, Greece, Croatia...
My way back was easy as to go there but loads and loads of people and no air conditioning that made it a bit difficult
Over all the British are handling it very well and the weather man also.
Here internet for email is very hard to send better way to contact people is via twitter or cell phone. Doesn't work under ground. Still wonder how they found people with their cell when there was this huge catastroph years ago.
You can get a cell phone for as cheap as 25 pounds good anywhere in the world United states, Africa, Europe except Canada.
