Olympic Torch Comes to East London

I had to work today as part of my organisations 2012 teams duties, the first time I have worked on a Saturday since Little Lady was born.  I didn't object because I had Friday off and because I knew it would be an interesting experience.  I spent the day telling people how they could buy or win tickets to the Games with the response ranging from enthusiasm to sarcasm.

I saw the torch come to East London, I couldn't see much from where I was sitting, but as I finished my shift caught the carnival of school children following it on their way out.

The original  torch from the 1948 London Olympics was also on display

I enjoyed the sights, but it was not the same without the kids there to share it.  I have tomorrow off and the torch passes by close to my house, so will be out with the kids to watch.
