  2. I was going to guess that it was a stadium, but your comment above already confirms that. Interesting picture.

  5. I remmeber work had started in the tube stations even as early as 2008 when i was leaving London.

    I hope they plan for it better than they are planning for the Commonwealth Games in India :-/

  9. I hope the London Olympics do not bankrupt the UK like the 2004 ones bankrupted Greece...Oh, I forgot - we are already bankrupt!

  12. @ Turnip: Hiya! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Yup - it is part of the Olympic complex. The Husband says probably a biking circuit.

    @ Keith: As a London ratepayer, I doubt it.

    @ Kathy: Not half as excited as South Africans are for the World Cup. It has all become pretty political here.

    @ Ash: Logistically, I think they are planning it very well but it does tend to all be a waste of money, doesn't it?

    @ Erin: Unfortunately, most of the Olympic sites are well out of the centre of London but I am sure all the news crews will take a tour around!

    @ Gena: Aaah, that is England for you - it was blue skies and sunshine 5 minutes before. A good New year to you too!

    @ Betty: Thank you!

    @ Nikos: is London already bankrupt???

    @ Cowgirl: And to you too!! I look forward to your posts this year!

    @ Sheila: I do hope they'll get it all finished.... but I'm sure they will. More so than South Africa!
