Within ten minutes of "checking in" for a two week stay at a friends place on Hyde Park for the Olympics a Coldplay song filtered through the window. I'm not a huge Coldplay fan but it's pretty cool that they were playing Hyde Park as people arrive in to London for the Games. It was a perfect day to enjoy the park too.
There is more than music in the air. The Olympics start today! A global celebration of sport and health. I'm excited. There is a buzz of excitement in the air throughout London. Wish you were here!
