London Gets Ready for the Games

Team GB is well supported

Even in the rain today London was buzzing with the excitement of the Olympic Games. Hyde Park was awash with tents and security waiting to welcome the Game officials  I spoke to some volunteers who had been going to and from Heathrow Airport since 3 am bringing officials into the city.

The shops are decorated and heaving with tourists.  Everything from Union Jacks to cups displaying cyclists weigh down the side street stalls.  There is a sense of excitement in the city that the Games are finally here.  

 Flags flutter in the wind   

Even the telephone boxes are colourful

I also spent an hour in Liberty`s admiring the amazing decor and endless beautiful things throughout the store.

I got told off for taking this photo from the fourth floor of Liberty`s. Luckily I had already taken a few snaps.
