Back the Bid!

London 2012!

That’s right, folks, all the banners and bus advertisments (that’s ad-VERT-iss-ments if you please) paid off – the 2012 Olympics are going to London! Hurrah for fish and chips, beefeaters, and doubledecker buses!

(psst to Poke – the art museum we visited (the National Gallery) is the building in the background of that picture in the article)

Chris and I wearing London 2012 flags Samurai-style at Wimbledon must have done it. 😉

But of course.

Sobering news from London this morning, sadly. Condolances to the families of the people who were killed and injured in the London terrorist bombing this morning.

Clearly, I need to stop travelling. The hotel where I lived for five weeks last fall was right between Russel Square and Tavistock Square – look at the map I linked to above. And some of you will remember that I was at a hotel in the shadow of the World Trade Center about a year and a half before 9/11. Don’t take me too seriously…but yet, it’s a bit eerie. Just to have been right there not that long ago.

And Russel Square is such a peaceful, SAFE-feeling part of London… God help us all.

Missed a quote mark, apparently. My above link does work now – thank you, Jen for covering my back. That’s what I get for posting in a hurry…
