The Olympic Torch Arrives in London

The Olympic torch has arrived in London. It began its tour this morning leaving Camden at 6:48am weaving its way towards Kings Cross where it arrived by barge along Regents Canal stopping at the steps to Granary Square. For this section the torch bearer was Paris Walker. As she stepped off the barge she was welcomed by a choir of young singers and showered with sparkling ticker tape. The torch was passed on to the next runner at the top of the stairs and left for St Pancras Station. It will continue on around the city arriving at Hyde Park around 4:30pm this afternoon.

Although the majority were delighted others aren't so enamoured with the Olympics.

It's very exciting though I can only imagine all the commotion in London now! The Londoners we know have both enjoyed the excitement while also yearning for disruptions to end.

I enjoyed your quiet spot yesterday, an escape from the crowds.

I'm guessing Paris will remember this for a while. Let the games begin!
