London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, day 69

When it comes to the 2012 Olympics in London, I’ve noticed two majorly different opinions here in London: 1.) They’re an annoying hassle causing chaos on the morning commute to work, or 2.) They’re the Olympics! It’s time to celebrate the greatest games on Earth.

Therefore, as of this morning when I managed to view the day 69 Olympic torch relay before work, I decided that if I can’t beat the crowds, I might as well join ’em. It’s the Olympics, after all, and how many people can actually say they’ve lived in a city (especially this incredible city) during the Olympics?

So with Tube update apps in hand, and an adjusted “get ahead of the games” Olympics work schedule (7:30 a.m. – 4:30 with an hour commute … ouch), I’m going into these games fully prepared to face the crowds, ignore the constant Olympic complainers, and enjoy the perfect way to end my summer here — with the 2012 London Olympics.

*Side note, this is a new attitude, because up until yesterday the thought of intensified people-packed Tube rides was giving me nightmares.  But maybe seeing that historic Olympic flame this morning helped cure that fear and spark some much-needed Olympic spirit inside of me! Here’s a quick look to get your Olympic spirit ready for the Opening Ceremony tomorrow night:
